BACA Transport committee needs vols

From Jim:


BACA Transportation Committee Chairperson Ephrem Minasse is currently soliciting members to work with him on transportation issues in our neighborhood. For your specific information, work of the Transportation Committee is described as follows:

“The Transportation Committee shall be responsible for keeping an inventory of the transportation needs of the community and of making recommendations to the body as to how they might be appropriately addressed, including but not limited to streets, alleys, traffic patterns, traffic signals, traffic signs, residential parking, curb cuts, and the like.”

Some of the preliminary goals that the committee has established for 2007 include (1) the recommendation of four way stop signs at the intersection of First and Bates Street, N.W.; (2) the recommendation of four way stop signs at the intersection of First and N Street, N.W.; the recommendation of a left hand turn signal for North Capitol Street, N.W. onto P Street, N.W., or non-rush hour left turning ability at this location; and the recommendation that participation in the Residential Permit Parking Program be expanded to include more blocks in the community.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Transportation Committee, in making suggestions for Committee’s consideration, and/or in spear-heading a project that is under their purview, please contact Chairman Minasse at eminasse at verizon dot net.
