Here's the meeting flyer, which despite what one guy says on the Columbia Heights listserve, has been spread around.
There will be a meeting held on 4 June 2008 at 1125 Spring Road, NW (the Mental Health Center), at 7:30pm, About the park at 11th and Monroe Streets, NW.Not really sure what the issues are, though the park's Yahoo group mentions removing tables and chess boards. Here's the park on Google Maps.
The purpose of this meeting is to provide a public forum for all the residents, especially those from ANC 1A04 and 1A07, to address concerns or make suggestions about the park. Residents of other Single Member Districts in ANC 1A are also invited to participate.
Results of this meeting will give directions to ANC 1A in its disposition of a Resolution that has been presented to make the park a more “family-friendly” park.
Please attend this meeting if you can. It is your voice that determines what happens with the park.
UPDATE: Folks in the comments say there are drunks hanging out there and it smells like booze and feces. So there's even more reason to go to the meeting.
