1. Implementing the recommendations of the Eckington Place Traffic Calming Study prepared for the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) Transportation Policy and Planning Administration more than two years ago and a discussion of damage to residences on R Street N.E. due to truck traffic.

2. DDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are working with our neighborhood to develop grants (approximately $50,000 each) that will bring streetscape improvements including banners, wrong iron tree boxes, and plants. Planning for both Eckington and Hanover/Truxton Circle grants is in the final stages. See for more information.

3. Julius Bell will discuss his plans to open J. Bell's, a “sit-down” restaurant located at the corner of P Street N.W. and North Capitol Street (1500 North Capitol Street N.W.).
