Annual Event Encourages Alternative Use of Parking Spaces For a Day To Highlight Sustainability Initiatives
(Washington D.C.) For the first time, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) will participate in the annual PARK(ing) Day on Friday, September 20, 2013, to highlight the District’s sustainability efforts and kick off car-free day activities in the region. Started in 2005 in San Francisco, the event has spread to cities around the world, as residents and businesses create temporary park spaces in parking spaces.
PARK(ing) Day will be open to anyone seeking to sponsor a six-hour temporary park. The parks will be limited to metered parking locations without time-of-day restrictions, and should be located in the middle of blocks for safety reasons. DDOT has developed a simple application form to be able to track and review potential locations. Event applications are due by Wednesday, September 11. Participants will be responsible for all costs associated with the temporary parks and will be responsible for cleaning up the spaces after the event.
“This is a way for us to celebrate our sustainability efforts and encourage the creativity of District residents, businesses, and visitors,” said DDOT Director Terry Bellamy. “We think this is a great idea to bring to the District to make sure people are engaged in our transportation system.”
PARK(ing) Day will help kick-off the region’s Car Free Day activities (http://www.carfreemetrodc.com/) which encourages the region’s residents to give up their car for a day and utilize other modes of transportation.
For more information about participating in the District’s PARK(ing) Day and/or to request an application please contact Stephen Hurst at 202-671-4580 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Attention Tenants and Tenant Stakeholder Groups:
The Housing Regulation Administration (HRA) invites you to attend our quarterly Tenant Stakeholder meeting on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 from 12:00 -2:00 pm. The meeting will be held at the Department of Housing and Community Development, Housing Resource Center, 1800 Martin Luther King Jr., Avenue, SE, 1st Floor, Washington, D.C. The resource center is located on the corner of Good Hope Road, SE and Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue, SE.
The purpose of the Tenant Stakeholder meeting is to bring tenants and tenant stakeholder groups together to learn more about HRA and to discuss methods to improve HRA’s ability to meet the needs of tenants in the District of Columbia.
During this information session we will focus our attention on divisions within HRA such as rental conversion and sale, rent control, inclusionary zoning and affordable dwelling units, and receive updates from the Housing Provider Ombudsman. HRA staff members will be present throughout the meeting to answer your questions. We will also provide a brief update on HRA activities over the past few months and on forthcoming efforts.
We would like to hear from you regarding HRA comments, issues and questions. If there is a topic that you would like to discuss at an upcoming stakeholder meeting, please let us know. We hope you will join us on September 10. If you are able to attend, please RSVP your attendance to Dawne Dorsey at (202) 442-4422 or email email@example.com.
