An Outdoor Pool for Ward 3 Survey

As posted to the Cleveland Park Listserv:

Did you know Ward 3 is the only ward without an outdoor swimming pool?

You may have read the recent article in the NW Current where Councilmember Cheh was quoted as having identified or secured funds necessary to bring an outdoor pool to Ward 3. It is important that residents of the Ward show strong support for this effort. As such, a quick survey was created to show this support.

Let’s make this a reality. The time is indeed now! Action today will mean our community could have a usable outdoor pool by summer of 2016, so there’s no time to waste.

Zoning Comission Coming to Ward 3 on Feb 11

In response to suggestions that the DC Office of Planning and the DC Office of Zoning have no had enough public input into the proposed zoning rewrite, the Zoning Commission has decided to take their show on the road. The Ward 3 event will take place on February 11 at Wilson High School, 6:00 PM. Those who have already testified in person are not supposed to be able to testify again. As such, this is an important opportunity for new voices to be heard.

The city is expected to grow by 100,000 to 200,000 new residents in the coming decades. If you think the roads are already choked and parking is already difficult, then the way to grow the population without the negative impacts that an auto-centric lifestyle bring is to support the Office of Planning proposals.

Please come out to Wilson on February 11th and let the Zoning Commission know that you support a sustainable and resilient District of Columbia.
