WHEREIN: We bring you the developments (happening in and around D.C.) that we think are newsworthy, or, at the very least, almost newsworthy.
- D.C. Councilmember Vincent Orange proposed an anti-noise bill that would fine businesses for producing “plainly audible” noise within the area of 50 feet at night and 100 feet in the daytime. D.C. music venues are doing something about it (via dcmusicdownload).
- A few words from the new Metro general manager: “I don’t see [Metro] as a mess, I see it as a challenge.” Interesting (via WAMU).
- WAMU explains what’s really up with Georgetown University’s ties to slave owners and slave owning practices.
- As was probably expected, some schools are reconsidering class field trips to D.C. (via WUSA9).
- Marine Layer, a San Francisco based retailer whose clothes are sustainable, soft, AND casual, is now at 14th Street. Fill that void, fill it with clothes (via Borderstan).
- The other sort-of-but-not-really like Uber and Lyft ride sharing service, Split, is expanding to the areas of Glover Park, Woodley Park, and Catholic University. Everybody sell your cars and throw away your metro cards (via Washington Post).
- D.C. residents’ highest concern is the city’s growing crime rate which the highest its been in almost ten years. Murders, they wrote (via Washington Post).
- There have been rumors that Chick-fil-A is opening a new location in Tenleytown. “Don’t let them eat fast food,” say concerned parents. It’s because the restaurant would be dangerously close to the neighboring schools (via City Paper).
