Don't Forget About M St Meeting Tonight

Councilmember Wells, SWNA, and ANC 6D will host a neighborhood meeting to discuss possibilities for M Street on Tuesday, March 9 from 6-7:30pm at the MPD First District Station, 101 M St SW. Full announcement below.

Councilmember Wells, in conjunction with the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly and ANC 6D, is hosting a neighborhood meeting to discuss how Southwest and near Southeast neighborhoods can make improvements to M Street through what’s known as a “complete street.”
“Complete street” is a term of art for planning and renovating streets to reduce the number and speed of cars on roadways, provide better pedestrian safety and support alternate means of travel that connect neighborhoods. Currently, AARP and other advocacy groups strongly support the concept for the potential it holds to build better and safer streets for seniors, families and other pedestrians. AARP will attend to share its efforts to bring complete streets to more communities like ours.
Please join us to discuss the possibilities for M Street.
Date: Tuesday, March 9th
Time: 6 – 7:30 pm
Location: MPD First District Station, 101 M Street, SW
