Thank you to everyone that came out this past Tuesday for the Joint ANC SMD 4A08/Crestwood Citizens Association Meeting! We talked about a wide range of issues, from clean air regulation to tennis courts, Rock Creek Park and Rock Creek Conservancy, and, of course, our furry friends.
A special thank you to Julia Washburn, Rock Creek Park Superintendent, who was our guest and spoke about a variety of issues relating to our neighbor Rock Creek Park. If you are interested in being on Rock Creek Park's email distribution list (which includes a schedule of events), click here.
Below is a summary of some of the topics we discussed.

Dog Waste Stations
Thanks to the generosity of a network of neighbors and sponsors, we now have eight neighborhood dog waste stations!
Two of them dispense bags for neighbors and dog walkers to use in picking up dog waste, and six of them have both doggie bags and trash cans to dispense with used bags. Please use them!
Please remember that cleaning up after your pet is the law. Pet waste contains harmful bacteria and parasites that make people and pets sick. When it is left outside, pet waste can be tracked into homes and cars or washed into our streams and rivers. Learn more here.
Below is a list of the stations and the generous people that have agreed to maintain them - meaning empty out the waste bin every week - a stinky job!
A special thank you goes to Commissioner Gale Black for supporting funding for these stations and the bags to fill them from the ANC.
Thanks also to Doug Barker for his Green Team leadership, George Chaconas for keeping the doggie bags filled for 10 YEARS and for monitoring all of the stations, and Carla Ferris from Waggamuffin Pet Care who purchased AND has agreed to maintain the new station at Blagden/Decatur/17th St.
