Dear PoPville,

As a homeowner in, and resident of, the U Street corridor, I received a flier the other day from the organizers of the new civic association, the “Shaw-Dupont Citizen’s Alliance,” which is intent on imposing a five-year liquor licence moratorium on the Corridor. The new association defines its boundaries as being from 12th to 16th Streets and from S to U Streets, N.W. Their first meeting is TOMORROW night, at 7:00, at the Thurgood Marshall Center, which is located at 1842 12th Street. Here is a link to their website with the agenda for tomorrow’s meeting.

I already have communicated to them my own personal opinion on their proposed moratorium (I am strongly opposed), and I would urge that others let their views be known as well. Maybe I am wrong, but I do not believe that the majority of my neighbors want to see this happen.
