Dear PoPville – New Temporary Drug Free Zone?

Dear PoPville,

I saw an MPD officer putting up these signs along the east side of the 3900 block of Kansas Ave NW. Though I’m happy to see a drug free zone established in the neighborhood (and hopefully enforced!), I’m a little perplexed about the timeframe (1/12-1/31). At first I thought it was odd to be such a short time frame (about 2.5 weeks) but after looking at the MPD website, it seems that Drug Free Zones may only be established for a maximum period of 10 days.

Also with the amount of active drug activity at the corner of 9th and Quincy (including a homicide in October) which happens to be at the back of the Raymond Elementary school, I’m surprised to not see the area expanded one more block to include this area as well. Have you seen these signs put up before? Anyway to get a permanent drug free zone established?
