Teamwork Across Ward 5

Dear Ward 5 neighbors, 

From Riggs Park to Langdon Park, from Bloomingdale to Brookland, from Fort Lincoln to Fort Totten and Truxton Circle to Trinidad—it has been a full month of community engagement and teamwork across Ward 5. The month started with community meetings in Woodridge to kick-off the South Dakota Corridor Safety Study, and a community clean-up that same day. It continued with my office’s Ward 5 Bus Network Engagement Meeting, the Capital Pride Parade, celebrating the Queens Chapel Civic Association’s 60th anniversary, and joining the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) for their kickoff meeting on the new park in Carver-Langston at 19th and L St NE that I secured in last year’s budget. Last weekend, we cut the ribbon on Ward 5’s newest park and recreation center in Bloomingdale, and connected with neighbors at the Health and Wellness Fair in Brookland Manor. Just in the last few days, my team has continued to invest in our communities by connecting with neighbors at WMATA’s Better Bus Pop-up at the Rhode Island Ave-Brentwood Metro Station, providing resources through our innovative pilot on North Capitol St, and attending the ANC 5A Special Meeting on public safety. 

This is how we build healthy communities: through teamwork across neighborhoods and issues. And that’s just the beginning of June: there’s more to come!
