Those of you who have a subscription to Roll Call might be interested in "Speaking Up Pays Off on Capitol Hill
," which discusses how public input from Capitol Hill residents can alter the city's development plans, with much of the piece centering around how citizen feedback seems
to have helped scuttle
the planned move of the police department to 225 Virginia Ave.
The July 18 public meeting--which I summarized here
--did get many issues about the move raised to the Office of Property Management, even though director Lars Etzkorn probably needed a few stiff drinks when he got home that night after the pummeling the plan took. But is the move truly off? There's been no news one way or the other since the Post wrote the not-so-fast piece
(which no other news outlets have followed up on), so at this point we're probably going to have to wait until the DC government starts back up again, after Labor Day. (h/t to reader B for the link)
