Please see the following announcement about a community meeting on the Met Branch Trail to discuss safety concerns.
Had enough with crime on the Met Branch Trail?
There are plenty of issues to address:
*** 911 dispatching
*** MPD response
*** Volunteer patrols
*** Safe behavior to reduce risk
Join us on the evening of Wednesday, June 22 from 4:00 to 7:00 PM at the S Street pocket park on the trail, at 4th & S Streets NE.
We've invited representatives from MPD, DDOT, and the surrounding neighborhoods to join us - and most importantly, we're inviting you to drop in!
As we all continue to work to make the trail a safer place, let's use the opportunity to meet face-to-face on the trail, share effective strategies and make new allies.
PS: After the open house, head down to NoMa's Summer Screen showing of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, just off the MBT at L and 2nd Streets NE. More info: http://www.nomabid.org/event-info/noma-summer-screen/
