Public Safety Updates

Fox5DC: SPRING SNOWSTORM: Snow beginning to move into DC region “Nearly all schools have cancelled classes and numerous government agencies have closed their doors as the D.C. region hunkers down for what is likely to become the heaviest snowfall of the year. The first part of the two-part winter weather system made its way across the D.C. region Tuesday bringing with it cold air, rain, and sleet.”

Fox5DC: DC Mayor declares snow emergency, schools closed Wednesday “D.C. Public schools will be closed on Wednesday due to the winter storm coming through the area. Mayor Muriel Bowser announced a Snow Emergency will be in effect from 9 a.m. Wednesday through 7 a.m. on Thursday. This means, however, that drivers may not park their cars along roadways considered “snow emergency routes,” which are posted with red and white “Snow Emergency Route” signs. If you your car has been towed from a snow emergency route, call (202) 727-5000.”

Mayor and City Council

Washington Post: Dry D.C. planning document fuels heated debate over future of expensive city “The issue seems painfully dull: a 1,000-page framework that outlines how the District should plan for land use, transportation, density, recreational space, economic development and environmental protection over the next 20 years. But it sparked a raging debate about gentrification, affordability and displacement as hundreds packed a D.C. Council hearing Tuesday on proposed changes to the city’s comprehensive plan.”

Washington Post: D.C. is ready for March for Our Lives protesters, mayor and police chief say “Federal agents will be on watch, D.C. police will be in full force, and Metro trains will run every few minutes to accommodate the 500,000 people that could descend on downtown Washington this weekend for the March for Our Lives rally, Mayor Muriel E. Bowser said Tuesday. Because the Saturday march — an anti-gun-violence demonstration led by the survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting — will draw thousands of students, many of them under 18, officials said they will take extra care to ensure the safety of protesters.”
