Community Happy Hour in Ward 5 with Councilmember Bonds next Thursday.

Councilmember Bonds is hosting a Ward 5 Community Office Hour Happy Hour, next Thursday, August 24, 2017, 6pm at the Steel Plate, located at 3523 12th St NE.

At the last coffee happy hour Councilmember Bonds hosted, neghibors were able to see the benefit in having face to face time with the Councilperson.  She was also able to meet new residents and hear about their experiences in the community as well.  It was well received by Fort Lincoln residents.

The N.Y. Avenue Eat-Shop Guide Debut! Feature Community – Fort Lincoln!

Over the next two months I will be working to create a publication that will highlight the businesses along the New York Ave. Northeast Gateway.  The goal is to take the relevant negiborhood offerings and compile into one document in an effort to boost the economic feasibility of our community.  The image below is the prototype, and will eventually serve as only 1 page of an entire document. The Eat-Shop Guide will feature Fort Lincoln, Bladensburg Road, Arboretum and Ivy City. It will become a key tool to spur the level of tourism and economic development we need.   Please note that no funds or endorsements were given for the creation of this document.  I created it because nothing else like it exists and it is intended to be the catalyst for the change that we all want to see in our community.  I’d love to hear your thoughts on what to add!  EAT SHOP MAP Fort Lincoln v2
