3rd at L, Looking West-Southwest (see more)

A slew of upcoming events to pass along:
* On Wednesday (Aug. 19), there's going to be an 11th Street Bridges Open House, billed as an update for Ward 8 residents about the status of the bridge replacement project. (But I'm guessing people from other wards can come, too.) It's from 7 pm to 8:30 pm, at the Union Temple Baptist Church at 1225 W St., SE.
* Thursday (Aug. 20) is the last night of the BID's 80's Outdoor Movies series, with "Ghostbusters" on the bill (rescheduled from a rainout earlier this year). Apparently the BID is planning a four-week fall movie series starting in September; I'll pass more along on that when I get it.
* Next Wednesday (Aug. 26) the DC Housing Authority is holding an official ribbon cutting and grand opening at Capitol Quarter, from 10 am to noon at Fourth and L, with the mayor expected to be in attendance. This is just a little over two years after the ceremonial groundbreaking, held on a sweltering day in June 2007.
* If you're desperate for something to do Wednesday morning but a ribbon cutting isn't your thing, the U.S. Navy Museum at the Washington Navy Yard will host "Pirate or Privateer? War of 1812 Day," a series of demonstrations and lectures on the War of 1812. The program, which runs from 10 am to 2 pm, includes Gun Drills in the replica of the USS Constitution and Sea Chanteys. The event is free and open to the public, though note that there's no parking available inside the gates for visitors.
* The National Capital Planning Commission again has the design of the 11th Street Bridges on their tentative agenda, for their Sept. 3 meeting. It had also been on the tentative agenda for the July meeting, but didn't make the final cut; hopefully that won't happen again, because NCPC always puts together such great reports on the projects it votes on (and posts them on their web site), so it's a good place to get details that have been hard to find elsewhere.
* This is still a few weeks away, but residents might want to mark their calendars that the next ANC 6D meeting, on Sept. 14 will be held in Southeast, at the Courtyard by Marriott at New Jersey and L. I've been attending ANC meetings off and on for six years, and this is the first one I remember that will be crossing South Capitol Street.
* The next day, Sept. 15, Urban Land Institute Washington is holding its third Urban Marketplace Conference and Expo, which brings together "the private, nonprofit, and public sectors to explore redevelopment opportunities and best practices in emerging neighborhoods and corridors across the Washington metropolitan region." One of the day's discussions, from 3 pm to 4 pm will focus on the ballpark district (and I'm one of the panelists).
All of these are of course on my Upcoming Events Calendar.

You will give the panel valuable expertise JD.

I noticed they provided your blog url, which is good, but I think they should have given you a title like the others, something along the lines of Resident/Neighborhood Blogger.

Anyway, congrats.

will there be another canal park ribbon cutting - now that would be embarrassing, laughable and uplifting at the same time


JD says: (8/18/09 3:22 PM)
Jay--There was actually some discussion about what title to give me. My real title--"Reporter/Writer/Photographer/Webmaster" is kind of long. :-)

C: I don't think that ceremony in 2007 was a ribbon cutting. (No ribbon was cut.) It was just an announcement of the first check to fund Canal and Teague parks from the USDOT PILOT.

We need a better grocery store in this new great neighborhood. Remember, the Trader Joe's in Foggy Bottom picked that location because of a few homeowner associations that continued to petition the store. Let's send some emails to Trader Joe's to get them to open a new store in Capitol Riverfront. I hear they are debating between Capitol Riverfront, Adams Morgan, and Columbia Heights.

Concur with Mr. Deez -- Three Buck Chuck! Three Buck Chuck!

JD - Apologies for my classification, but please let's not let the details get in the way of the facts - Canal park while now apparently making progress has languished for well over five years. I attended stakeholder meetings on this park three years ago, was introduced to its Seattle designers, met with AWC staff and witness multiple rhetorical ribbon cuttings - either way you slice it, the Actual ribbon cutting will be AMAZING and EMBARASSING.


J says: (8/19/09 7:35 PM)
Mark, why don't you start up the petition for Trader Joe's. Where did you hear that Capitol Riverfront is a finalist for a new store?
