Kenilworth Swing Space Update

The school will be a swing space for Smothers for a two year project. However it can potentially become a swing space for a 6 to 8 yrs. There will be temporary structures that resemble a giant bubble in the back of the recreation center. EGCA is collecting signatures and engaging DCPS about our feelings for the future. We did get feedback; will meet with director of DPR.

Second phase ends in early March.

Rep: MPD 6D (Contact information: 202-440-2698)

Crime has decreased as a whole

Thefts from auto is up. Here are some tips:

Don’t run your car with your doors unlocked.

Make sure your car is on the proper setting that will not allow all the doors to unlock when you exit your car for gas, etc.

Don’t leave things in plain view, especially on the front seat people.

Community concerns:

Lane Street: Boys have been going through cars early morning & at night.

The park is continuously open with no patrols.

What can we do?

Call MPD and ask “for special attention,” and you can remain anonymous.

Going out of town? Let your neighbors know or contact the MPD for “special attention” and they’ll drive by for home checks.

Report petty crimes to 911
