Bloomingdale Civic Association votes to support letter to DDOT to “immediately implement the 45 study recommendations” in NoMa BID’s 2019 North Capitol Street Needs Assessment study -- recommendations that are specific to Bloomingdale

At the Monday, 02/24/20202, Bloomingdale Civic Association meeting, Eckington’s Nick Sementelli reviewed recent pedestrian deaths along North Capitol Street and presented his interest in obtaining the Bloomingdale Civic Association’s support for a letter written to DDOT asking them to implement the NoMa BID’s North Capitol Street Needs Assessment study from 2019.

Here is the link to the letter soliciting support for, with all the signers to date:

Specifically, the letter asked DDOT to immediately implement the 45 study recommendations that were listed as projected to take less than one year to be implemented, and for the agency to jumpstart the process for the medium and longer term recommendations, projected to take greater than one year to be implemented. He noted that most neighborhood civic associations and ANCs have voted to support.

Ms. Quinn described to possible options for the BCA to support the letter requesting DDOT action on the North Capitol Street Needs Assessment: either support of the entire letter or only support the actions that are specific to Bloomingdale.

A motion was made and seconded to support the letter requesting that DDOT implement the short-term items that are Bloomingdale-specific.  A friendly amendment was offered to ask DDOT to perform a comprehensive north-south North Capitol Street traffic study; the friendly amendment was not accepted.

A statement will be added to the letter that indicates that the BCA only supports the short-term items that relate to Bloomingdale.

The motion passed 7 to 4.

Below is the part of the first page of this letter to DDOT to whet your appetite.
