They are also contacting property owners of the empty lot/building/parking spaces for maintaince and securing their building There is a lot of illegal dumping and overgrowth in the alley which adds to the problems. To combat this I am going to be organizing a cleanup day for this alley with the Mayor's office and will let you know more details soon.

Alley Repair and Cleanup
I wanted to let neighbors know that we should start to see some long standing issues closed out starting this week. I have been following up with DDOT, DPW and DCRA to address the concerns in one of our alleys in our SMD since I took office in January. Last week I meet with Tommie Jones from the Mayor's office as well as representatives from these agencies to do a walk thru of the area to determine what we can do to help repair and cleanup the alley between 3rd/4th/Adams/Bryant Streets NE. We discussed repairs to the large potholes and that first a determination would have to be made about which areas are in fact public space. They will be repairing those public space areas this week weather permitting.
