Neighbors, City Schedule Meeting to Address Noise Issue

After years of frustration, nine months of recent effort, and a blizzard of emails, MPD First District Inspector Andy Solberg and I agree to organize a meeting of all affected parties. We believe a live meeting will harmonize the patchword of regulations, agencies and people to resolve this lingering and apparently complex problem that continues to hinder the quality of life for the people living near the intersection of 8th and H Streets NE.

I ask Inspector Solberg to please moderate the meeting. He agrees. We establish this outline for the meeting.
