About 30 people turned out for Saturday’s 7th District meeting at the Peter Paul Development Center, not counting firefighters. Topics of discussion included fire safety, the H1N1 flu, and a spirited conversation on public safety. Representatives from New Visions, Unity, Concerned Citizens, Union Hill Civic Association, and the Church Hill Association were present, as well as three of the City Council candidates.
Highlights included audiance questions posed to Chief Robert Creecy, allegations of prostitution around the vacant house at 23rd and U Streets, and the comments of long time residents and civic leaders frustrated by crime, loitering, trash, issues related to public housing.
