“Dear PoPville,

Not sure if you have heard that the Eckington Civic Association (ECA) has decided to vote on pursuing historic designation for Eckington. This is becoming a somewhat heated issue for the neighborhood with people having strong opinions on all sides. Mostly this seems to be an anti-pop up effort by a few people (despite the 35 ft cap that’s already in R4).

They have just announced they are starting with a survey and based on the results of that survey, those who belong to the ECA will get to vote on pursuing historic. There’s not much information being shared on how many people have to respond to the survey, what the survey will actually ask, and what results will allow the ECA to move forward and vote. It’s definitely upsetting to some of us that not all residents can vote, only those who paid to be ECA members vote… (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to give the community an update on my friend who was hit by a construction truck. The driver was arrested in December thanks to the community on brainstorming where to find footage and proof of incident for the investigation.

Friend still has a long road to recovery, but thankfully is miraculously alive.
Updates (and any donations that folks are able to provide to help this friend and his loving family) can be found here.

Thanks again to the PoPville community for their help and support.”
