Monday night, the Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2E, representing Burleith, Georgetown, and Hillandale, convened for their monthly meeting at Georgetown Visitation School. The commissioners discussed plans for a public recycling program, the Taste of Georgetown, Serve D.C., and the Nation’s Triathlon.
Making Georgetown less of a pain to bike around: fewer potholes, more bike lanes.
Chairman Ron Lewis opened with a report on transportation. He was pleased to announce the accruement of new maintenance trucks designed specifically to mend potholes.
“The truck pulls up to a hole and sprays it with various kinds of stuff and it’s dry by the time the truck pulls away,” said Lewis.
Lewis continued his transportation report with the announcement of a new bike lane being designated on M Street from 28th to 14th Streets. He reassured his audience that the lane would not compromise parking along M Street.
“Are you sure? L Street lost a lot of parking when they made a bike lane there,” said Vice-chair Bill Starrels.
Next on the agenda was announcement of a public space recycling program initiated by the Georgetown Business Improvement District. The program will install 160 cans throughout the Georgetown business corridor, from T St to the waterfront.
