On Tuesday evening, the Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2E, which represents the Georgetown, Burleith, and Hillendale areas, met to have their monthly discussions about parking spaces, smelly trees, and police speedboats.
Not every meeting can be as exciting as this one, but here’s what was on the agenda this month.
Parking up the wrong tree
In early August, the District implemented a new program to change the parking situation in Georgetown. In an effort to clean up the situation somewhat, the District Department of Transportation implemented a city-wide visitor parking pass program, wherein residents could request a pass for any visitors, who could then park on residential streets free of charge. The obvious catch is that in an area as high in demand for parking as Georgetown, these passes could go for a pretty sweet premium.
The ANC expressed their displeasure at the new DDOT measure, although not with as much intensity as the Georgetown Metropolitan. So keep your eyes peeled for visitor parking passes on the black market, although Vox is going to guess you’re never going to need them.
