Meeting Report. Thanks to all who attended our December 9 meeting – the first in-person gathering since February 2020. We have submitted some inquiries to the City about the traffic issues that were discussed at the meeting. Also, thanks to newly-elected State Delegate Elizabeth Bennett-Parker, who joined us to prove an update on anticipated legislation to address street racing issues.
