Did you miss the Village Town Hall or the May 4 One-Level Living symposium? No worries—read about both in the June CHV News. Questions came up at the Town Hall about grants funding, how it works, and why it's important to CHV, so we have reprinted Molly's column on the topic.
CHV gets a new computer system . . .
training shuts down the office!
CHV will be learning and launching a new computer system over the next few weeks. To that end, the office will be closed intermittently June 26 – June 29 for the staff to learn our new system.
We will not be answering the phones or responding to emails during the times listed below. We will get back to you as soon as possible, after the training is complete. If you have an urgent call we will be able to respond. Please note the following office closures:
* Tuesday, June 26; 9:00 am - noon
* Wednesday, June 27; ALL DAY 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
* Thursday, June 28; noon - 5:00 pm
* Friday, June 29; ALL DAY 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
We will still be working on requests and signing people up for events. It would be best if you can email us at email@example.com instead of calling during the office closures. Thank you for your patience.
Washington DC has undertaken a trial period of promoting mobile dockles bikes and electric scooters which provide a low cost ($1 per ride), healthy, environmentally friendly, fun way to travel across the city. Bikes and scooters can be left anywhere within Washington DC.
The city has extended the pilot project on use of dockless bikes until the end of August, and in the meantime is collecting input from residents about how they are working. In June, CHV members and volunteers joined in a spirited discussion about dockless bikes and scooters and their impact on pedestrians, especially older adults, persons with disabilities, and others who use a mobility device such as a cane, walker, or wheelchair.
Capitol Hill Village members are writing to express their concern around the public safety risks of poorly managed personal mobility devices causing individuals to trip over them on the sidewalk as well as risk collision with them.
The CHV Advocacy Corps has suggested you write to your Council Member and ANC representative about this issue. CLICK HERE to download a PDF with DC City Council and ANC contact info and Ward/ANC maps.
