Restaurant Costa Brava and Howard Univ. present tonight
The January meeting of the LeDroit Park Civic Association is tonight at 7 pm in the basement of the Florida Avenue Baptist Church (enter at U Street and Bohrer Street).
The owner of Costa Brava (1837 First St NW) will introduce the neighborhood to his new Catalonian restaurant. I had dinner at the restaurant late last year and I highly recommend it.
Howard University representatives will propose changes to university policy regarding student conduct and public safety:
- Expanding the area around the campus deemed subject to the reporting of crime statistics.
- Giving universities broader authority to address student misconduct that takes place off-campus.
- Giving the Mayor or a university President the ability to request the assistance of other campus police personnel in cases of emergency, thus allowing the Metropolitan Police Department to focus their resources elsewhere.
The meeting will also include the usual committee reports and a community open forum. Everyone is welcome to attend.
