ANC 5C03 Elections (Petition for Nomination)

 

ANC 5C Map
After a lot of deliberation, I have decided to complete the Nomination Application for ANC Commissioner for Fort Lincoln! We need swift resolution to a plethora of issues as well as planning initiatives with several city departments. It takes a certain level of competence to work through the complex issues, passion for Fort Lincoln to bring closure to long standing problems and the willingness to listen and work with our residents whether you are a Senior, a long time resident or new to the community. I am ready to take this challenge head-on and start to bring the significant yet gradual change to residents of Fort Lincoln. We deserve the same level of Respect, Attentiveness, and Amenities as any other neighborhood in the city and I will demand it from our City Officials. I have what it takes to facilitate, organize, and execute these issues and I need your help to get it done. I will be going door to door in the next few days, respectfully requesting your signature to run for the next ANC Commissioner for Fort Lincoln ANC 5C03.

Together we can stop the cycle of prolonged excuses and make Fort Lincoln the example of what a great community should be!

Yours Truly,
Robert Looper III “RL3”

Dog Park At Fort Lincoln

So I reached out to Bob King, ANC Commissioner, to get the history on the Dog Park at Fort Lincoln Park and the information was not favorable.  I was informed that when this idea was proposed back in the early 2000’s, The Department of Parks and Recreation did not want to build a Dog park in Fort Lincoln because it would set a bad precedent for neighborhood specific Dog Parks throughout the city.   The compromise was to build a more centralized dog park in Langdon Park instead. So in 2011 the Dog park at Langdon park was opened to service the entire area.  It’s located 5 minutes from the Villages @ Dakota Crossing Driving, about 20-30 walking minutes.

My opinion is that this is absurd and is reminiscent of the crooked DC politics of old ( They two councilmen who were against dog parks are now in prison). Demand for a dog park should be what drives the creation of one.   Mr. King stated that if we really want the park then he needs to see the interests. So if you are interested in getting signatures from not only your Community Cluster but from others in Fort Lincoln please let me know.  I would love a dog park but will not go into this fight alone ( I can easily just walk to Langdon park LOL ).
