Mayor Muriel Bowser conducts community and public safety walks in each ward, each month, and each time in a different neighborhood.
Today we joined @MayorBowser and @DCMOCRS during Mayor Bowser’s monthly community walk in #Ward6. During the walk we addressed public safety concerns and engaged with local businesses. #ShopSmallDC #DCValues pic.twitter.com/qdAWS0ub4S

Council members and representatives from agencies such as DDOT usually join her on these walks, as will be the case when Mayor Bowser holds her first neighborhood walk in Van Ness this Wednesday, January 15th at 3:30 p.m.
Among those accompanying the mayor: UDC President Ronald Mason, and representatives from the DC Department of Small and Local Business Development, Ward 3 Council member Mary Cheh’s office, ANC 3F and Van Ness Main Street. Members of the Van Ness community are invited to attend.
The walk begins in the UDC Student Center lobby at 4200 Connecticut Avenue. Participants will stop at various points of interest along Connecticut, pop into small businesses, and they’ll discuss pedestrian safety issues and future projects along the way.
Van Ness Main Street has more on what to expect:
- The Mayor’s neighborhood walks typically attract 100-150 participants. Be prepared for a very large crowd!
- This event will be held rain or shine.
- The route will be determined just before the event starts. We will not have prior knowledge.
- If you miss us inside of the UDC lobby, look for a large group on Connecticut Ave. In an effort to remain flexible, there is not a pre-determined schedule.
