Secret plan to fix Metro today:
Today's WMATA Board meeting will include David Gunn's assessment of the problems with Metro, but given in secret
as we discussed earlier. Some Board members say they hope to be able to share Gunn's findings following the report. (Get There)
Even more bike lane details:
The Post gets more details
on the Pennsylvania Avenue and I and L bike lanes: On I and L, cyclists will mix with left-turning traffic near intersections; on Penn, cyclists will turn on green while drivers will wait for left arrows. Thankfully, the Post assigned Ashley Halsey and not Lisa Rein to write the article, yielding many facts and little alarmism.
Know any great candidates?:
The Montgomery County Council has extended the application deadline
to try to get more candidates for Planning Board chairman. Know anyone? Joe Alfandre, Planning Board member and New Urbanist Kentlands developer, has been good on the Board so far and did apply. (Post)
2 hours isn't enough:
John Kelly's readers are finding 2-hour parking limits problematic
as DC extends meter hours into the evening. That's a good argument for a real performance parking system instead of arbitrary limits. Kelly also gets on board with more credit card meters. (Post, Michael P)
More food for all:
There's going to be a new community garden
in Shaw, behind Bread for the City. They're looking for volunteers to help prepare the land on Saturday. (DC Food For All)
