“Dear PoPville,

For some time, a small group of residents in Bloomingdale has worked aggressively in the neighborhood to promote historic district designation.  It’s obvious that the area is extremely divided about the idea.  While many would like to stop the ugly popups, there is a wide variety of opinion when it comes to whether the blunt hammer of the historic preservation law is a good idea.  Existing residents are concerned that roof decks may not be able to be added, and that in general the cost of renovations will be unnecessarily higher because of the HPRB process and materials requirements.

“Dear PoPville,

DC Water started construction on the First Street Tunnel project in Bloomingdale in 2014. Before construction began, they visited most homes in the neighborhood to perform pre-construction surveys and document existing home conditions. We completed this survey because the construction of the tunnel would happen less than 100 feet from our house.

Over the course of the construction of the tunnel, our home started to exhibit cracks in the dry wall that were indicative of foundation damage. The addition to our home, built in the early 2000s started to pull away from the original house. A structural engineer and a foundation repair company both confirmed the damage, which was not present in the pre-construction survey nor in our home inspection completed in 2013.

At the conclusion of the project, DC Water sent requests for claims associated with the construction to be managed by their insurance company, ESIS. I filled out the claim, provided documentation and they followed up with site vists from not one, but THREE engineers of their own. (more…)

One reader reports:

“This hate-filled flier (above) was left on my windshield Sunday night at about 11pm, 100 block of T St NW, Bloomingdale. 7 other cars on the block were pasted as well.”

Another reader reports:

“White supremacist fliers being posted in my neighborhood (Bloomingdale). Tore these ones down. These were on the corner of 1/W NW”

I was hoping it was just that one guy from SW but it appears it may be a bigger issue:
