My cranky celebration of life in Alexandria (Virginia)'s historic Parker-Gray District.
Cmon Patricia and William.....froecast for Saturday calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of 77 degrees...Or is the Mayor for Life too afraid?
Was there any mention of it being resceduled? Or is that it?...
Based on emails I've sent in the past, I've found the mayor to be unresponsive anyway. The other council members are much more interested, I think. When we reschedule the walk, can we please invite all of the other council members, especially Krupicka and Pepper. I've found them to be very helpful in the past. It might be a more productive walk. Otherwise, we'll get the same results as last year. I.e. zip.
There was mention that the Executive Board of ICCA would get back to everyone with a new date.What's interesting is that like the last event, the proposed walk route would have extended outside ICCA boundaries up to and beyond the Braddock Road Metro. Yet it is unclear if there was any plan to engage the larger community (like the Madison townhomes or Colecroft). Did those folks get City-distributed fliers last year?
I live outside the boundaries of PG and ICCA. I didn't get any notice of the mayor's walk, either last year or this year. I heard about last year's walk afterwards from a neighbor who is in the bounds of ICCA. Of course, now I read Growler faithfully and am fully in the know. And participating. And I'll be voting much differently in the next election, now that I am more fully informed.
"Did those folks get City-distributed fliers last year? "Last year the City posted fliers all over the area round Wythe and Madison, including right on the Adkins and Bland properties.This year, zippo. No notice, no mention anywhere. I dont even know the route they are taking.All I know is that all that furious effort by ARHA that I saw on Monday to clean up all the trash around their projects is for naught.
We live easily within the ICCA boundaries and unlike last year have received no flier or announcement advertising the Mayor's walk. As for tonight's walk, in fairness it is 5 p.m. and raining.
Can some blogger explain what the big deal about this walk is?In looking at the route, it sounds like some kind of scenic tour more than a walk that allows people to convey their issues with the Inner City neighborhood. For example, I dont see any part of the walk going into the ARHA projects or the warehouse areas north of Madison
