Dear Advisory Neighborhood Commissions,

We need to hear from residents, workers, and visitors of the District and we would greatly appreciate your help to spread the word!

The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) recently announced moveDC, a collaborative planning effort to develop a Multimodal Long Range Transportation Plan for the District. MoveDC will bring together transit, rail, vehicular, bicycle, pedestrian, and freight recommendations into one seamless, district-wide transportation plan. This plan is scheduled to be completed in 2014. It’s time to get DC moving.

To kick off the study, a transportation planning Idea Exchange is scheduled for February 9, 2013.  ecause public involvement is a significant component of the study, we are asking for your support to maximize our outreach by sharing the information provided with your groups.   Event details are included in the attached news release, flyer and the email notification below for you to share.  We have also attached materials in Spanish.

Help us spread the message:
  • Send the flyer and email messages to your email groups.
  • Create a Web link to our website (http://www.wemoveDC.org)
  • Spread the word socially:
    1. Facebook: www.facebook.com/wemovedc
    2. Twitter: http://twitter.com/wemovedc
  • Post information on your website (news release and flyer attached) and RSS Feed
  • Use our press release for newsletter articles
  • Post the event date on your event calendar

Please keep us informed of the outreach steps you are able to complete so that we can include in the outreach summary and call if you have any questions or suggestions for further outreach.
