As I’ve spoken with ANC6B10 neighbors, one consistent theme has emerged – parking or the lack there of.

People from out of town park in ANC6B10 during RFK Stadium events even though there are parking lots assigned to these events.  The problem is then exacerbated by the fact that DC officials do not enforce the no parking zones.  As a result, Virginia and Maryland drivers park in front of our houses while we have to find parking several blocks away.

RFK Stadium is hosting its quarterly neighborhood meeting tomorrow night and I encourage everyone to attend.   For the past several years, only 5-8 neighbors have attended.  We need more neighbors to attend and express their concerns to DC Sports & Entertainment.

Information about the RFK neighborhood meeting and upcoming events can be found below.
