Come to the Public Meeting on the Klingle Right-of-Way
Wednesday, October 7th 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Zoo Visitor Center Auditorium
3100 Connecticut Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20008
The District Department of Transportation is holding a public meeting relating to the scope of an Environmental Assessment of the Klingle hike/bike trail legislation enacted by the D.C. Council in 2008. Sponsored by Ward 3 Councilmember, Mary Cheh, this legislation repealed a law that required the District to rebuild Klingle Road and open it to the public for motor vehicle traffic. Instead, the 2008 legislation requires that all pavement from the public road be torn up and replaced with a hike/bike trail surfaced with a water permeable surface. While this environmental assessment will not change the 2008 law, it is important that it fully consider the environmental impacts.
Make your voice heard on this important government resource allocation issue.
DDOT is also inviting comments on historic preservation concerns under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.
You may speak at the public meeting, bring written comments, ask questions and make suggestions on alternatives.
If you are unable to make it to the meeting, the website, http://www.klingletrail.com/contact.asp, allows you to submit comments on line.
