 Page Through from Before to After

A few things to pass along as we kiss summer goodbye (yes, I know it technically doesn't end for another few weeks, blah blah blah):
* The Capitol Riverfront BID is applying for a DC Public Art Building Communities grant to get funding to "improve the look, feel and experience of traveling into and out of the Capitol Riverfront along New Jersey Ave., SE, while also creating unique gateway art that represents the identity, sense of place and community in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood." They will be presenting their concepts at the Sept. 13 ANC 6D meeting, with applications being due on Oct. 13. If the project is selected to receive a grant, there would be public meetings sometime next year to "refine" the concepts, with hopes to complete the project by fall 2011. Though I can't imagine why anyone would want to beautify THIS!
* I'm not seeing this on the posted agenda yet, but a reader reports to me that CSX will be making presentations to ANC 6B's Planning and Zoning Committee tonight (Sept. 7) and the full ANC on Sept. 21 about a permit the freight company is apparently requesting to conduct an archaeological survey of Virginia Avenue Park prior to their planned expansion of the tunnel that runs under the park.
* Tonight you might see some folks with clipboards hanging around the Navy Yard Metro station entrances; they will be part of the Public Transportation Takes Us There petition drive by the American Public Transportation Association, trying to convince Congress to pass a long-term surface transportation funding bill. For the point of view of someone who has signed the petition, read this recent Richard Layman post. (I am wondering, and have no answer, whether this is the bill that CSX has been looking toward [along with other public money options] for funding the rest of the National Gateway project, which includes the expansion of the Virginia Avenue Tunnel.)
* You may have seen commenter MJM referencing recently his newfound obsession with the history of Near Southeast, and now he's put up a blog where you can share in the fruits of his research.

I read Mr. Layman's post, I would like to share my experience with him and get his take. I have a family with 3 kids and would prefer not to move into tht District and put them in the public schools here. So, I do live outside of Baltimore and take the horrible (if you don't think so, try it for a month)commute of wondering if a train will arrive and then look forward to the most selfish people on the planet (METRO riders). After the train was already 10 minutes late, they announced that MARC was not running but the next train was an AMTRAK. When they arrived the conductor said you could ride to Baltimore Penn Station (one stop) but then would have to get off and catch another MARC train (who knows how long the wait is). So I do try and take transit, but I would love to see these transit/bus/walk people actually ride more than two stops on a bus route and then say how great the commute is.

Thanks for the link to MJM's blog. It's really interesting...

It would be nice if the BID added the 3rd ST SE underpass to their permit application. There's probably as much traffic through there as NJ Ave.

Anyone ever dispute an erroneous parking ticket in DC? I was ticketed recently (though I never actually received a copy of the ticket on my car) and received a mailed notice of unsatisfied parking tickets.

Now I have to pay $100 for a $50 ticket that I never received. Not to mention that the ticket is for "Emergency No Parkin-00 Block K St SE South Side"

The actual location of the ticket makes a big difference as the block immediately north of the old dog park was no parking, while, I believe, the block immediately north of the parking lot is Zone 6 parking.

Any ideas? Without having actually received the ticket, it is going to be hard to defend myself. Should I get in touch with Councilman Wells?


Andrew in DC says: (9/7/10 4:01 PM)
Maybe I'm just slow today, but I read and re-read Mike D's post four times and I still have no earthly idea what he's on about.

Anyone help me with an english-to-english translation? Something beyond "I live far away and had a bad commute" and random disdain for metro riders?
