If you live downtown in Penn Quarter, this meeting is for you. The first Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2C meeting solely dedicated to the Penn Quarter is tonight at 6:30 pm in the Martin Luther King Library (901 G St NW) in Auditorium A-10.
Prior to the 2010 census, Penn Quarter and downtown’s East End was split between two wards, Ward 2 and Ward 6, which also meant that there were two different jurisdictions where community meetings would be held depending on which side of the street you lived on. Consolidation brought the two jurisdictions together into one ward, Ward 2, and one ANC, 2C. The 2010 census made this possible because changes in the ward populations required that the ward boundaries be redrawn. A number of Penn Quarter residents worked hard to get this new ANC set up including one of your own Penn Quarter Living writers. You might say this meeting has been ten years in the making.
Check out the draft agenda after the break…come on out and meet the neighbors. We’ll see you there!
P.S. The next meeting after tonight’s will be Monday, February 11.
