“Dear PoPville,

Tuesday evening (3/27) around 8:30pm, I was walking NW on Adams Mill Road toward the zoo, on the west side of the street. I noticed four young men come out of Walter Pierce Park behind me and follow me. Since it was not particularly late, I wasn’t concerned at first, but looking back, I noticed that they all wore parka hoodies and had the hoods pulled up over their heads, and they weren’t speaking. The street was getting darker as I walked down the hill past Ontario Road, and I decided against putting my earbuds in so I could focus on what was happening behind me, as it appeared they were walking quickly, catching up to me.

“Dear PoPville,

This weekend I received a bizarre notice from DC OTR saying that they have no record of my 2015 tax filings — and that I need to reply within 30 days with proof of my 2015 filing or face penalties, fines, and assessments.

It seems that quite a few of our neighbors got a similar letter/notice from the DC OTR stating that OTR has no record of their DC tax return or payment from 2014 or 2015, that they should share their return and a canceled check with them as proof that of filing, and that there will be assessments and penalties if they don’t do this within 30 days.

Thanks to Amanda for passing on from Old School Hardware:

“Dear Neighbors,

Since July of 2010, my wife Katie and I have owned Old School Hardware. We’ve been proud and honored over the years as our customers, neighbors and friends have helped us to make it one of things that makes Mt. Pleasant a special place. We have decided to pursue a new opportunity outside the DC area and will be selling the store. (more…)

Thanks to Terry for passing on

The purpose of this event is to provide the Mt. Pleasant community with an in-person forum to learn more about their home value, the assessment process, and tax programs to reduce their tax bill. We feel this is a timely event because real property tax assessment notices are being mailed to District property owners this week. The event is scheduled to be held on Thursday, March 7 from 6:30 – 8:00pm. The presenters include:

Deputy Chief Financial Officer Keith Richardson
OTR Director of Operations Eva Liggins
Chief DC Appraiser Olufemi Omotoso
Tax Relief Specialist Jeffrey Toney

We will also have additional staff on hand in case attendees have other questions related to OTR. This is a great opportunity for OTR to directly engage with Mt. Pleasant”

“Dear PoPville,

I am writing to you to let you know of this amazing music community that started one year ago and has flourished. They just had their one year anniversary and I heard the story for the first time. Apparently two Mt. Pleasant neighborhood people noticed an unused piano at Purple Patch, and they approached the owner, and one thing led to another and they started Open Piano nights. It’s a amazing community of pianists that come play a variety of tunes, from ragtime, to jazz, or classical. Anyone who wants to come play, plays. I just want the rest of D.C. to know about this great piano community.”
