This Parking Focus Group will address the parking issues that have been raised by the residents residing in the Unit and 100 blocks of R St NW, 1600-1800 blocks of First St NW and the Unit block of Randolph Place NW.

Please share this information with your neighbors. The meeting will take place as follows:
