“Dear PoPville,

Raccoon dying of rabies outside my office (Wyoming at 18th) in Adams Morgan. Damn it is sad to watch. Heads up that there may be others around too.

I’ve called DC animal control 3x since 7 AM and they sent someone out but the truck were apparently flagged down by MPD en route.

Could be another illness but the signs of late stage rabies are present: (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

This car has flat tires, parked in an emergency no parking zone, and hasn’t been ticketed or towed – apparently for years. How is this possible?”

‘What Happened Here’ by Dan Silverman: Citizen of the District of Columbia

It was a hot day. You could practically see the steam rising from the sidewalks. But it was an even hotter night and Victor didn’t get a wink of sleep. The A/C unit overloaded in his apartment and of course the sirens were blaring like clockwork on Columbia Road, which kept Victor, or Vic as all his gambling buddies called him, up all night tossing and turning. And thinking about Holly, where was Holly tonight? He pulled his last Parliament out of a soft pack and it was cracked. Of course it was. Sleep finally came at 5:34am just as his neighbor’s dog started barking for his morning walk. Vic let out a mighty cough and a mightier curse. Of course it was a good thing for Vic that he did wake because he forgot he left his wallet at the newly reopened Habana Village down the block. (more…)

I’ve been getting lots of emails from folks asking for updates on the Streets Market coming to the old Metro K space. I’m told they are just waiting on a construction permit but they are definitely still coming. If all goes well they should open in the fourth quarter of 2019.

22nd and N Street, NW

Also the Streets coming to the West End is on track to open in the third quarter of this year.

Updates as we get exact opening dates at both locations.

From Councilmember Silverman’s office:

“In response to a request from two D.C. Council members, D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine has issued a legal opinion concluding that the Bowser Administration does not have authority to waive specific D.C. hiring requirements put in law in order for the Line Hotel to qualify for a taxpayer subsidy worth up to $46 million. Earlier this month, the Department of Employment Services (DOES) found that the hotel had not met two of seven specific requirements legislated by the Council but said the agency had the ability to create an alternative compliance plan.

“The Adams Morgan Hotel Real Property Tax Abatement Act of 2010 (“Abatement Act”) grants the Line Hotel a tax abatement if the Hotel meets seven statutory conditions. You asked whether the Department of Employment Services (“DOES”) may waive those conditions. We conclude that it may not,” Racine wrote. (more…)
