- If you are planning to travel around the city on Saturday, make sure you check out the National Marathon route map. The marathon begins and ends at RFK Stadium, which means it will be tough to drive north on Saturday morning. Note that the marathon begins at 7:00 am.
- Wondering what happened to the trash cans on the Payne Elementary School grounds? A few residents on the 1500 block of C Street SE and D Street SE asked me to look into the issue. Apparently, DC Public Schools removed the cans after one was set on fire over a weekend last year. Payne’s Principal, Vielka Scott-Marcus, will ask DCPS to replace the cans with the caveat that they be removed again if problems arise. Thanks to Principal Marcus for her help and thanks to the residents for bringing it to my attention.
- According to the Prince of Petworth, the retail space on the corner of 14th and Pennsylvania has been sold. Unfortunately, Annie and Teddy’s sandwich shop is not going to happen. Hopefully a café/coffee shop/sandwich place will eventually move in. I’ll let you know if I learn anything new.
- ANC 6B has announced a second special call meeting on the Hine redevelopment project, taking place on Tues., April 26, 6:30 pm, at Brent Elementary School (301 North Carolina Avenue SE).

Also note that the Capitol Hill Restoration Society (CHRS) is holding a public meeting to discuss the Hine redevelopment on Tues., April 5, 6:45 pm – 8:30 pm at Maury Elementary School (13th St. NE and Constitution Ave. NE).
- We had a great turnout for last week’s neighborhood walk. Weather permitting, we will be walking again this Sunday, March 27, 6:00 pm, beginning in the front of Harris Teeter (1350 Pennsylvania Ave. SE). I hope to see you there.
Have a great weekend!
