Central Union Mission - Still Scouting for a New Home

The Central Union Mission, currently located on the corner of 14th and R, is in the middle of a move-and-redevelop process. They sold their property to a developer, and obtained property and zoning up on Georgia Avenue. The neighborhood, though, has been less than enthusiastic about a homeless shelter in an area they hope to see go through a growth spurt in the future - although it didn't seem to hurt our neck of the woods much!

Still, the Post is reporting that the Mission is looking and options for property closer to downtown, since more of the homeless population seems to be deeper in the city. I'm not sure where they think they're going to go, but let's hope they find a home soon. They're scheduled to move out of their current location in 2009.

Stepped Up Parking Enforcement

Mike Benardo, the commissioner for ANC 2F06, got a note from Mark Bjorge that MPD will be increasing parking enforcement in our neighborhood.

This message is to inform you that MPD 3D has begun full enforcement of posted parking regulations 7 days per week. We ask for your help in ensuring that residents are informed of this increased attention to parking compliance and safety issues, which will begin immediately.

Given the often contentious nature of the parking issue in the past, let's hope that this keeps up over the long haul. Blocked crosswalks and fire hydrants are simply not acceptable, and neither are residents unable to move their cars.

So make sure you park your car in a legal spot!
