Events: Does city growth mean dividing people by class?

"If you don't have the big dollars, they want you out," says one woman. "People want to live in [here]," replies another. "Are there going to be people moving out? That's what happens." One man wonders, "If we continue with this, where's it gonna lead? Is it gonna be apartheid?"

Dig into the thinking behind these quotes at an event this week, or check out a number of other ways to get involved in your community offline.

All three quotes are from Class Divide, a documentary that will run on HBO next weekend that's about gentrification and stagnant class mobility in Manhattan. But is it that hard to imagine them being about DC?

You can check out a preview on Tuesday night at 5:30 at 3333 14th Street NW, and afterward, catch a panel discussion on how the same issues might play out in our region and how to prevent displacing people.

Panel members will include Class Divide's director, Marc Levin, along with Right to the City executive director Dawn Phillips and Scott Kratz, the director of the 11th Street Bridge Park project. The event is hosted by the Urban Institute.

Monday, September 26: Little River Turnpike runs between City of Fairfax and Alexandria, and the Fairfax Department of Transportation wants to make riding a bike along the corridor easier. Share your thoughts on how to do that at a meeting today at 6:30 pm at Annandale High School (4700 Medford Drive).

Wednesday, September 28: Bus Rapid Transit could soon be a reality on Veirs Mill Road in Montgomery County, which would mean reliable transit for many residents. Attend a public meeting this Wednesday, September 28, at 6:30 pm at 101 Monroe Street in Rockville to learn about the options and share your thoughts.

Thursday, September 29: Learn how public-private partnerships work from a subject expert, Brian Middleton, the Project Director for the Regional Transportation District's FasTracks Eagle P3 commuter rail project in Denver, and talk about how his lessons can help the Purple Line.

Thursday, September 29: A special law in DC, the Tenant Opportunity to Purchase Act, allows tenants the opportunity to buy their property before it is sold.

Saturday, October 15: Metro wants help putting its trove of data to use; for example, a developer could help customers plan a trip that only went to station entrances with elevators. The agency's Office of Planning is hosting a day-long idea session next month at 600 5th Street NW to talk about what data there is and what needs riders might have, and to work on potential solutions. Attending is free, but make sure to RSVP!

Clearly we need to have more happy hours in Prince George's

It's been six years since we had a happy hour in Prince George's County. Tuesday night, we came back with County Executive Rushern Baker and had such a huge turnout we couldn't fit on the sidewalk.


If you weren't in Mount Rainier Tuesday night, you missed out. All photos and videos by the author unless otherwise noted.

Since we started organizing happy hours seven years ago, we've picked bars and restaurants to visit based on one rule: it should be near a Metro station, so everyone can get there without a car.

We've had no trouble finding places in DC, Montgomery County, and Northern Virginia, where bars and restaurants cluster around Metro stations. But I've struggled to find venues in Prince George's County, which has lagged the rest of the region in building around Metro, though that's starting to change under County Executive Rushern Baker.


Rushern Baker greets the crowd.

With help from Baker's staff, who promoted the event, and GGWash contributor/Mount Rainier councilmember Tracy Loh, we found Bird Kitchen + Cocktails and agreed to bend the Metro station rule. And we got our highest turnout ever.

Nearly 100 people showed up Tuesday night from across DC, Maryland, and Virginia, forming a crowd that spilled out of the tiny restaurant onto the sidewalk and into the street. Little traffic jams formed on Rhode Island Avenue as passing drivers tried to figure out what was going on.

GGWash happy hour slows traffic on Rhode Island Avenue
Happy hours as traffic calming.

You bet we'll be back to Prince George's County. Thanks to Rushern Baker for speaking, to Tracy Loh for organizing, Bird Kitchen for handling a huge crowd with grace, and to everybody who came out!

Events roundup: Can we end automobile dependence?

To make our region greater, we need to get involved both online and in person. Check our our list of ways to get involved!


Photo by VCU CNS on Flickr.

The United States has a long-running love affair with cars, and here in the DC region we're still struggling to focus on moving people rather than moving cars. Peter Newman, the author of The End of Automobile Dependence: How Cities are Moving Beyond Car-Based Planning, has examined car-dependence in 44 global cities.

Hear what Newman has learned and how it relates to where we live at a book talk this Thursday, August 11, at ZGF Architects (1800 K Street NW #200). Doors open at 5:30 pm and the event begins at 6 pm.

Other upcoming events:

Tuesday, August 9: As residents flock to urbanizing areas, there's often both a need for new schools and limited land to build on. Hear from Pranjali Rai and Ralph Bennett from the University of Maryland at this month's Action Committee for Transit meeting as they address building schools in high-density areas. The meeting is on Tuesday, August 9 at 7:30 pm at the Silver Spring Civic Building (1 Veterans Place).

Saturday, August 13: What could make Ward 4 an even better place to live? The District's Department of Transportation wants to know and is holding two simultaneous outreach events on Saturday, August 13, both from 9 am to 1 pm. One is at the 14th & Kennedy Farmers' Market (14th and Kennedy Streets NW) and the other is at the Petworth Community Market (9th and Upshur Streets NW).
