Chair, ANC 3F Streets & Sidewalks Committee
The ANC 3F Streets and Sidewalks Committee is looking for volunteers to help conduct a comprehensive survey of the state of the neighborhood’s streets, sidewalks, and related issues. The group will hold a training session on Saturday, April 29, at 12:00 p.m. at the Van Ness Main Street office (4340 Connecticut Avenue).
The Committee invites neighborhood volunteers to come and learn how to use the electronic survey form the Committee has developed. Ideally, volunteers will take an assignment to survey a few blocks of the neighborhood, either on the 29th or sometime before the Committee’s next meeting on May 10th. We expect that the training and the survey work combined will require about 2-3 hours of each volunteer.
The Streets and Sidewalks Committee was formed last fall and has begun work to prepare a prioritized list of issues within ANC 3F. The Committee’s survey is intended to include damaged and missing sidewalks, street surfaces in need of repair, storm water management issues, traffic flow and street sign issues, pedestrian safety concerns, parking issues, alleyways, and any other related issues the Committee may identify.
After completing the survey this spring, the Committee will analyze information gathered through the survey and report the results to the ANC during the summer. The Committee will then work with the ANC to follow up with the relevant District agencies as needed to address issues that are identified.
If you plan to attend on the 29th, please let us know by signing up at ANC3F.com/streets.
