“I have a follow up for Bun DC. It is in fact the same ownership from Pho Viet. I bumped into the owner of Pho Viet inspecting the restaurant from outside and she told me that it is actually her mother’s restaurant, but she will also be a cook. Regardless, the Pho Viet family will have their handprints all over this. She said they are ready to go and could easily open in a week, but have been waiting on DC to inspect the place for months. As a huge Pho Viet fan, DC needs to hurry up and get on this!”
Amen. STAY TUNED.

Thanks to Cait for passing on from the New Communities Initiative:
“BELL Architects has been selected to lead the design of the acre park that will front Georgia Avenue and Columbia Road NW. The chosen team also includes the Landscape Architecture Bureau and Wiles Mensch Corporation. A key factor in BELL’s selection was their experience and qualifications leading comprehensive community design. Accordingly, BELL believes that community engagement is the key to a successful project and community satisfaction. Their project team has experience leading interactive community meetings to gain feedback to incorporate into the design. The first community-wide meeting is being planned for March 2018 and will be announced broadly.”

I received numerous messages last night like this one:
“Helicopters have been circling Columbia Heights/Petworth/Park View since last night. My wife heard it was due to a search for a missing person who was found, but they’re still circling. Anyone know what’s going on?”
MPD first reported:
“Fourth District Officers were searching for a missing person with the assistance of the MPD helicopter. The missing person was located”
“Officers of the Third Police District are searching for a prisoner who escaped from police custody. The suspect is described as an African American male, 5’10”, 155 pounds, dark complexion, wearing a white t-shirt, black pants, and dark shoes. The suspect was last seen running eastbound in the 600 block of Lamont Street, NW. He is wanted on drug, theft, and traffic charges.
Anyone with information regarding this escaped prisoner is asked to contact the Metropolitan Police Department’s Command Information Center at 202-727-9099.”
