Wrap Up from Saturday’s MPD Meet and Greet

April 27, 2015

4D Commander Wilfredo Manlapaz and Councilmember Anita Bonds

Saturday’s MPD Meet and Greet, organized by Councilmember Anita Bonds, was well attended. In addition to a room full of residents, many ANC Commissioners from 1A and 4C were there, and Councilmember Elissa Silverman showed up during the latter half of the meeting.

Representing the police were 4D Commander Wilfredo Manlapaz and Captain Vendette Parker. The event was originally organized as a meet and greet so that residents could better know the officers patrolling their communities. However, with only two representatives from MPD there, the format changed into a question and answer session.

Drew Schneider posted a fairly detailed overview of the meeting at this Petworth News page which is worth a read as well.

Mapping Area Homicides and Assaults with Deadly Weapons for 2011

December 13, 2011

As we are nearing the end of the year, I thought it would be informative to see where this year’s homicides and assaults with deadly weapons (ADW) have been. The map below (via the link) includes all the known incidents in these categories for 2011 in ANC 1A, 1B, and 4C. Homicides are in red, ADW involving a gun are in purple, and all other ADWs are in yellow.

While the Park View area appears to be much quieter in these crimes than surrounding areas, it is having a huge spike in theft from autos. I’ll map out property crimes involving autos in the coming weeks.

Sweet Mango Fence Retroactively Getting Approved

November 10, 2010

The fence at Sweet Mango was erected in May, 2010

Back in May, Sweet Mango erected a fence on the public space along Rock Creek Church Road without permits. After receiving a stop work order, DCRA issued a permit that allowed them to finish. However, DCRA inappropriately issued that permit without the approval of DDOT, which has authority over public space.

Last night, ANC4C took up the issue of voting on the public space permit application for the fence that has already been built. As expected, the discussion centered on the lack of process and the oddity of seeking approval for something that has already been done.

Chief among the concerns discussed were the fence’s compliance with DDOT regulations and how much sidewalk currently exists between the fence and the loading bay. Several residents expressed concern that the sidewalk currently is so narrow that it is difficult for strollers to pass and may even be too narrow for wheelchairs.

After a significant amount of discussion, the commissioners voted to approve the application with the provisions that the fence meet with DDOT guidelines and the sidewalk be deemed compliant with ADA guidelines.
