Notes from Single Member District 5C09 Meeting 1/6/12
Brookland Park Apartments – As noted previously, the ownership of the property has changed hands. Jair Lynch Development has taken ownership. They’ve brought on Keptler Management to assume on-site management duties. Their plans are to do upgrades to the property. The residential use will remain at the “affordable” rate of 60% or less of the Average Median Income (AMI) in the D.C. area. Brookland Park residents are in talks with management about upgrades to the facility. There has been a list of requests compiled and the development team plans to complete all upgrades by the end of 2012. Area residents at the meeting expressed concerns about façade improvements, in particular, the rusted fences. I’ve contacted the development team and there are plans to complete that request.
Updates from Mayor Gray’s Office of Neighborhood Engagement – Carl Thomas represents the Ward 5 Office of Neighborhood Engagement for the Mayor. Carl spoke to residents about his roles and responsibilities. In summary, he is the liaison between the community and the Mayor. Constituent concerns and issues that fall under the Mayor’s purview are reported to the Office of the Mayor by Carl. He also coordinates with District agencies to respond to requests for city services from residents. Carl can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or (202) 340-7141.
The District Department of the Environment (DDOE) – Sharon Cooke, Chief, Office of Community Relations for DDOE presented information on programs and initiatives put in place by the city to create cost-saving opportunities for residents. Sharon can be reached at email@example.com or (202) 535-2511.

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) – Connie Wheeler represents the Transportation Operations Administration segment of DDOT. She oversees operations in Ward 5-8. She responded to concerns about construction traffic along 7th Street. We are currently working to include The Metropolitan Police Department as much as possible to increase enforcement. She noted the addition of a 4-way stop light at 4th & Douglas Streets, N.E. She is also continuing to assess the area for increased traffic calming measures. She also mentioned that parking along 7th Street between Lawrence and Monroe could potentially have parking meters for patrons of WMATA. I’ve taken note of all of the requests of residents at the meeting and sent an email to Connie to follow up on the matters. Please send any additional matters to me via email. Connie can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
