I would like to know what needs to be done to stop street sweeping / Ward 1 parking only on my street?
The street sweeping / Ward 1 parking only does not allow my friends, family and medical personnel to visit or conduct business on Mondays and Tuesdays in my area.
Im located between New Hampshire Avenue and Georgia Avenue with several elderly, handicap, retired and working class people who keep the front of their homes clear of trash and some neighbors request other neighbors to move their cars while on vacationing or in hospital.
I have given people that came to visit me or my neighbors my visitor’s parking pass,(only issued one per household) to use but on Mondays / Tuesdays you can’t find a parking space because the residents have moved their cars to the correct side of the street the night before.
I hope you can provide me with some direction, because I know that my area is not the only affected by street sweeping or Ward Only parking.”

Design: Aziz Safi and Farid Nouri worked with Areetoon Jayanan Architecture & Interior Design to create the 3,100-square foot, 119-seat space, which has a tranquil feel inspired by modern French and Belgian brasseries. Finishes were chosen to create a warm and inviting space. Major design elements include warm hues, custom millwork, old Chicago blanc walls, brown oak beams, and rustic wood flooring throughout. Other highlights include a 300-bottle glass-enclosed wine display, benches upholstered in steel-blue velvet, vintage railing sconces in rustic iron, as well as butcher-block dining tables paired with leather and solid oak steam-bent chairs. A dramatic eight-foot wall installation of gazing eyes is one of the focal points of the space as is the charcuterie station made of floral and subway tile, which is visible to guests in the dining room and bar.
