The Transition to a New IT System Continues

Your Input is Needed: Make a Statement about Dockless Bikes and Electric Scooters

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.

Value $2,100; minimum bid $1,000.

A Week at a Vermont “Walden” with Amenities. The farmhouse in Southern Vermont offered by Mary Procter and Bill Matuszeski provides beauty and tranquility both winter and summer (due in part to its lack of TV, cell service and internet).
