Four citizens associations will join to host a forum about Connecticut Avenue Northwest pedestrian safety initiatives Tuesday in Cleveland Park.
The forum at Adas Israel Congregation will feature a panel of representatives from four different initiatives: Marlene Berlin for Connecticut Avenue Pedestrian Action; Karina Ricks for the District Department of Transportation’s Rock Creek West 2 Livability Study; George Branyan for DDOT’s Cleveland Park Streetscape and Pedestrian Safety Project; and Andrea Limauro of the District Office of Planning, for the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments’s grant to improve multimodal transportation in the Van Ness area.
The event is meant to inform residents about the pedestrian-related projects currently being discussed for Connecticut Avenue between Calvert Street Northwest and Chevy Chase Circle, Susie Taylor, president of the Cleveland Park Citizens Association, said in an e-mail.
CPCA is hosting the forum along with the Chevy Chase, Forest Hills and Woodley Park citizens associations.
Michael Reese, second district commander of the Metropolitan Police Department, and Lisa Sutter, traffic enforcement manager at MPD, will also attend to discuss law enforcement’s role in pedestrian safety along Connecticut.
The forum will be at Kogod Chapel in Adas Israel, at the intersection of Porter and Quebec streets in Cleveland Park.
