FWIW I’m not affiliated with any DC agency, just merely trying to help spread the word about this meeting in the hopes that hearing from the public will shed light on the ineffectiveness and shortcomings of the program.
From the release:
The purpose of this public roundtable is to receive testimony from the public and government witnesses regarding implementation of the District laws and regulations governing vacant and blighted property. It is the public policy to eliminate vacant and blighted property conditions. Relevant to this roundtable is the September 21, 2017 report produced by the Office of the District of Columbia Auditor entitled “Significant Improvements Needed in DCRA Management of Vacant and Blighted Property Program”.”
