If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 6-8 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

From the Office of Tax and Revenue Real Property Tax Administration:

“The Real Property Tax Administration (RPTA) strives to assess property at 100% of estimated market value. Estimated market value is generally defined as the most probable price that a buyer would pay a willing seller on the open market. As the property owner, you are given the opportunity to dispute the assessment of your real property through a formal appeal process. The process involves three levels of appeal, beginning with the First Level Administrative Review(First Level). Subsequent steps include appealing before the Real Property Tax Appeals Commission and DC Superior Court. You must, however, start at the First Level before proceeding to the next levels of appeal. Please complete the following information in order to file the First Level appeal of your property.

YOU MUST FILE YOUR APPEAL ON OR BEFORE APRIL 1, 2015

“Dear PoPville,

I have lived in LeDroit for almost 8 years and have been by this building hundreds of times and have never seen a person go in or out. What is this place? Is it a real agency?”

District of Columbia Housing Finance Agency is for real:

“The HFA was established in 1979 to stimulate and expand homeownership and rental housing opportunities in Washington, D.C. We accomplish our mission by issuing mortgage revenue bonds that lower the homebuyers’ costs of purchasing homes and the developers’ costs of acquiring, constructing and rehabilitating rental housing. We embrace our responsibility with conviction and pledge our best efforts to serve as the city’s champion for homeowners and renters and to act as the city’s principal catalyst for neighborhood investment.”

Anyone ever interact with them through the DC Opens Doors or other programs?

“We adopted a yellow lab/retriever mix a week ago, today it pulled loose while being walked and ran away at 2pm today. It was by Howard University on Georgia Ave – the dog is 40 lbs, his name is Ollie, he will likely have his tail between his legs because he is always scared, and he is wearing a pink collar that says WARL and a light blue harness with a grey leash attached. Heartworm positive, reward will be offered. POC Roger 914-844-7692 or AnneMarie 801-971-2836.”
