Got something to say about Georgia Ave? Take the survey

If you live near or use Georgia Avenue, odds are you have some opinions about it. The Georgia Avenue Community Development Task Force is holding a survey in both English and Spanish to get ideas on what should be done.

They're also looking for help to distribute the survey around the neighborhood for all those people who aren't on the net, like dropping them in their building lobby, at Howard U, at meetings, in Spanish, and with door-to-doo distribution in April and May. If you'd like to help with any of these, email or call (202) 462-2285.

Here's more, also posted on the Adams Morgan listserve:
The Georgia Avenue Community Development Task Force is a grassroots community group which began in December 2009 in response to development slated for Georgia Avenue with little or no community input. Large projects such as Broadcast One, the Howard Town Center, the Howard University Tech Plaza, Bruce Monroe, Park Morton and other projects underway will significantly change the face of Georgia Avenue. It is important that the community not only weigh in, but actively work to ensure that the results will meet the needs and desires of the current residents and business owners and preserve the history and culture of the neighborhood.
They meet the 2nd Monday and 4th Wednesday of every month, with the next one at 2801 Georgia Ave NW on Monday.
