“Today, the Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE) announce the release of a broad-ranging Transportation Electrification Roadmap (TER) to help the District transition its local transportation modes to zero-emission vehicles by 2045.

From the National Park Service:

“The National Park Service has completed the Environmental Assessment for the future management of Beach Drive in Rock Creek Park.

The NPS will hold a public meeting on this proposal on July 18 at 6:30pm. The public is invited to review the Environmental Assessment and share comments and questions through August 11.”
