Special ANC Meeting on "Street Festivals" (read: Fiesta DC)

I haven't been posting about the ANC or the ANC meetings for various reasons. The meetings are at La Casa (3166 Mt Pleasant St), usually the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM.

However, next Tuesday there is a special meeting. Same time and place, but the agenda is specifically about street festivals in general and the Fiesta DC Fest in particular. The questions explored will be:
  • What kind of street festivals are right for Mt Pleasant?
  • Is there a right size for Mt Pleasant?
  • What restrictions are reasonable?
Reading trough the Mt Pleasant forum leads me to believe that most of the concerns are focused on noise levels, parking and trash issues. I'm sure these three issues will be at the center of discussion. Any resolutions or recommendations will be handed over to the city to implement before Fiesta DC 2007, in theory. There's a draft resolution here. If you have something to say, drop by.
