Re: Draft ANC 3C Resolution ton DDOT Study on Connecticut Avenue

Ed Carley <ed.carley@...>
 

From previous message: "The day after the center lane was permanently made into a left-turn only lane, we all turned to each other and asked: Why didn’t they do this years ago!?"

So what you’re saying is, last time DDOT made a big change, people were really happy with the results?

I’m sure that lots of Cleveland Parkers thought that change would be the carpocalypse too and panicked about it, but as you’ve pointed out, they immediately liked the result when it happened. So let’s build the darn bike lane. Otherwise I’m worried someone is going to have to get killed on Connecticut to get DDOT and Mary Chen to take action to make the corridor safe for everyone who uses it.

ISO replacement dishwasher recommendations

Cheryl Maltz
 

Hi neighbors,

It’s time to replace our old dishwasher. Ideally, looking for something that:
·         does a good job washing (and drying) dishes
·         isn’t extremely loud
·         is reasonably priced
·         has reasonable duration regular wash cycle

Does anyone have a model/manufacturer/specs to recommend (pro or con)?

Many thanks,

Cheryl

From DC AG Karl A. Racine: Conversations on Combating Hate - Webinar on April 14, 1-3pm

Conversations on Combating Hate
 
We have a hate problem in this country. And sadly, we’re trending in the wrong direction. 2019 was the deadliest year on record for hate crimes – and we still haven’t seen the national data from last year. We learn about these crimes on the news, from our communities, and experiences in our own lives. No one should have to fear being the victim of a hate crime. No one should have to worry that they will be targeted because of the way they look, who they love, or where they worship.
 
This year, as the president of the National Association of Attorneys General, I launched an initiative called the People v. Hate. The initiative aims to raise awareness of hate and bias, prevent hate from taking root in our communities, support residents who have experienced hate, and develop and share best practices on improving hate crime data.
 
Combating hate isn’t a partisan issue – we must work together as a country and in our communities to root it out. That starts by having open conversations.
 
On April 14, I’m hosting a webinar centered on the impact of hate. The event will bring together victims of hate crimes, survivors, and their families. They will share their personal stories of devastating loss, resilience, and advocacy in the wake of deadly attacks and their recommendations for changes to prevent hate and support those who have experienced its horrific consequences.
 
Among the several family members and survivors joining the discussion will include Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer, who was killed in the Charlottesville attack in 2017, and Rabbi Hazzan Jeffrey Myers who survived the attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh in 2018. Their stories are important. No one should have to experience what they and their loved ones have gone through. And through conversations like this one and needed action, we can work to make sure no one else has to.
 
Click on the link below to register for this webinar on The Rise of Hate and its Deadly Consequences. I hope you join.
 
Thank you.

Re: Question Re: Metro begins phasing out older SmarTrip cards as part of upgrades to faregates and fare payment technology

Alec Dann
 


Look on the back of your card and find the card serial number on the lower right side (20 digits separated into five groups of four). If the first four digits of the card serial number are 0167, your card does not need to be replaced.

Smart Benefits can refer to automatic additions of credit to your card when it falls below a minimum level. Smart Benefits can also refer to money added to your card by your employer if you participate in a commuting program (pre-tax deductions from your paycheck).

Re: Zoo traffic

James Linde
 


There is no way a community is going to force the Zoo to build a parking garage. Maybe they can put in for an additional appropriation from the federal government to pay for it? The zoo cut the garage out of their plans purely for budgetary reasons.

It would make sense if we, as a beleaguered community, would finally require the Smithsonian to solve its own parking problems and not put it on the neighborhood streets to absorb their parking. How about Lawn signs: BUILD ZOO PARKING GARAGE!  Let's do a little parking shaming. Nothing in life is free, especially in the big city. [snip]

Can the exchanges take place in Metro stations? Specific offices? Will buses also be affected by these changes?

Editor's note: If you read the original Metro announcement at https://www.wmata.com/about/news/Metro-begins-phasing-out-older-SmarTrip-cards.cfm you will find a link to a webpage at wmata.com/cardreplacement that answers most of the questions people have about how and when the exchanges can be made. The main thing to note is that only plastic farecards issued in 2012 or earlier need to be replaced. You can look on the back of the card to see the series of numbers at the bottom right edge of the card. If you see the numbers 0167, your card does NOT need to be replaced.

If you have other questions not answered by reading the material at https://www.wmata.com/fares/smartrip/gocard-replacement.cfm , call SmarTrip customer service: 1-888-SMARTRIP (1-888-762-7874)..

This is the number to report ILLEGALLY parked cars: 202 576 6071/Zoo traffic

Paul Warren
 


I know that this is not necessary for most, but the last few emails have started talking charging admissions to non FONZ members to the zoo as some sort of traffic deterrent, so I just wanted to remind our reader that the National Zoo is part of the Smithsonian Institution and does not charge admission. I think that if we all look away from our tiny worlds for a moment we can acknowledge that the broader exposure the Zoo brings to large groups of people vastly outweighs some sort of experimental, lets for the first time ever start charging for access to a national institution in hopes that people do not come.

Since the Zoo and FONZ have severed their relationship,  the Zoo can if it wants, charge everybody --including FONZ members-- for parking now. See:  Zoo ends FONZ partnership - The Washington Post 

If you have forgotten that the Smithsonian does not charge admission, still, then it is time for you to treat yourself to another benefit of living in the city and get out and visit any of the Smithsonian facilities. If you are a die hard and want to shape traffic policy with your dollars, there are plenty  of pay per visit private museums as well which you can visit and then suggest that they create private parking  or dig garages to keep cars from parking on public city streets.

Re: Zoo traffic

Dear Margaret and everyone,

It would make sense if we, as a beleaguered community, would finally require the Smithsonian to solve its own parking problems and not put it on the neighborhood streets to absorb their parking. How about Lawn signs: BUILD ZOO PARKING GARAGE!  Let's do a little parking shaming. Nothing in life is free, especially in the big city. 

At the rate that office space is rented downtown, how much would it cost, per sq. ft. to park a car all day at a zoo parking lot? Why can’t  Metro make a weekend offering to reduce the cost of parking at their suburban lots and offer a wee little break on fare cards to the Woodley Park/Zoo station? This would only be on the weekend when the daily commuters are home mowing their lawns. 

There would be the occasional daughter-in-law bringing the grandkids into town to visit the grandparents in Woodley Park, but that would be minor compared to the hoards of suburbanites who circle through our streets, belching exhaust, jamming their cars too close to our driveways and parking illegally under stop signs looking for someplace to leave the car so they can show the kids a real live panda!

Perhaps Cleveland Park and Woodley Park should stop wringing their hands about the Metro and zoo parking on its streets and start a BUILD ZOO PARKING campaign!
 
~Eleanor O.
 
-previous message-
Cheryl makes a good point that the Zoo is in a residential area with virtually no adjacent street parking so visitors who bring families in cars park on neighborhood streets if they don’t want to pay for parking in the zoo. It reminded me that not long ago DC required the Cathedral to accommodate visitors, resulting in the Cathedral’s costly construction of underground parking. It would make sense for the Zoo to expand their parking facilities.

Thank you so much for this important information! It's another example of the invaluable help we get from the Cleveland Park listserv.

This Metro announcement says that “ Customers that participate in SmartBenefits are currently unable to transfer balances to a new card online and will be notified at a later date. Participants should login to their SmarTrip account to make sure their contact information is up to date.” When I turned 65 I started getting the senior discount. Is that considered SmartBenefits? Do I need to wait until notified to exchange my card in order not to lose my senior discount status?
