On Tues., Aug. 11, the Mayor’s Office of Community Relations, the Metropolitan Police Department, local ANC commissioners and Hill East residents will be holding a safety walk through the neighborhood. The walk will begin at 5:30 pm at Eastern High School (1700 East Capitol Street SE) and proceed south through Hill East, ending around 7 pm at Liberty Baptist Church (527 Kentucky Ave SE). In addition to the Mayor’s Office and MPD, representatives from the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Public Safety, Department of Human Services and Department of Behavioral Health will be in attendance.
I’ll post a final walk route if it is made available prior to the event. I’ll also attempt to live tweet the walk so residents can join in progress.
Immediately following the walk, MPD will host a rescheduled PSA 108 meeting at 7 pm at Liberty Baptist Church (a makeup for the cancelled meeting on Aug. 6). Please bring any questions or concerns you have to the walk and/or meeting.
Hope to see you on Tuesday!
