Open Coffee Chat Sat. May 30th with BNCA

BNCA invites you to the next gathering of the Brookland Neighborhood Civic Association, which will be held on Saturday, May 30, from 10:00am to 11:30am at Serendipity Cafe at 3301 12th St NE.  Coffee-Chat3
This month’s convening will be in an “open house” format. We hope this will accommodate busy weekend schedules and allow for informal dialogue.  Come join us for a cup of coffee, tea and/or pastry for a discussion about development activity in the neighborhood and the Brookland-Edgewood Livability Study, a city-led effort focused on transportation in our community.   In addition, please invite your neighbors to drop by to join the conversation, meet officers and love to have them as a new or returning member.
You can drop by for 5-10 minutes or stay for the entire time. We want to hear thoughts from BNCA members about how our civic association can take steps to shape development activity in the neighborhood. We also plan to look together at the online map for the livability  study and add feedback to it.  You can view what’s on the map here:  http://belivabilitystudy.com/interactive-study-area-map/.
We hope to see you on May 30!

This event is a result of a new partnership with Rock Creek Conservancy, a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting the lands and waters of Rock Creek and other Federal Parks in the District. Fort Bunker Hill Park is managed by the National Park Service, and those of you who visit it know that it’s in need of some local stewardship.

*Please be sure to REGISTER HERE so that we can get an accurate head count on participation. Also, additional information is available on this link. 

Our April Event will focus primarily on cleaning up trash and removing ivy and vines from the trees. Rock Creek Conservancy will be providing trash bags, gloves, and other tools as necessary. Please wear long sleeve shirts and pants and feel free to bring your own tools. Children are welcome to participate.

We look forward to your participation and to future events within our neighborhood.
