“The proposals call on the Mayor to declare a state of emergency for homelessness in Columbia Heights.”

14th Street, NW between Columbia and Irving

“Dear PoPville,

MuralsDC put up a sign in front of Unity Health Care in Columbia Heights announcing a new mural project. Lots of artists working together to put up some murals.

In the process they’ve put caution tape up in the place where there was a shooting earlier this year, and more where earlier this week I walked past someone who was (unconscious?) from K2. It seems kind of heavy handed but at the same time, I’ve had four blessed days in a row of no street harassment here.

Before you ask, no, that’s Einstein holding spray paint on the alley wall, the lineart that defines his features is hard to see from far away.”

Somewhat related, Geovanny writes:

“I wanted to share this proposal for readers to sign to help ease the burden of homeless in the Columbia Heights neighborhood.

The proposals calls on Mayor Muriel Bowser declare a state of emergency for homelessness in Columbia Heights. With additional funding and community resources, one of the vacant DC USA spaces can serve the needs of homeless, including serving healthy meals, offering medical assistance, public restrooms and showers, and safe storage spaces.

I encourage the community to review the proposal and sign if you agree, and also leave feedback to continue this important discussion.”
