Our Favorite Restaurants Close Until Next Year

Our favorite restaurants in the neighborhood...Utopia, Coppi's, and DC Noodles...have closed for the construction of the Louis apartments.  They will all reopen in a year.  For those who have lived here for a long time, Utopia was our first restaurant when all the buildings were boarded up at the corner of 14th and U.  Then came Coppi's and now we have DC Noodles.  We look forward to the renovation of the buildings that house them.  The required 55 foot setback from the U Street facades for the Louis apartments building will preserve the historic townhouses.  We look forward to a refurbished Utopia, Coppi's and DC Noodles!

Post Office Opens at Reeves Center

Today I am pleased to announce that the T Street Post Office is OPEN at the Reeves Center after several months of renovations to the vacant space.  Post Office Boxes are now available for customers to pick up their mail.  I look forward to supporting this Post Office location and I think the hundreds of new residents that are coming to all of our new buildings along 14th Street will also use this facility.  Thank you to the DC Postmaster for listening to us and keeping a Post Office in our neighborhood!

July 4: No Trash Pick-up or Parking Enforcement

The DC Department of Public Works will observe Independence Day, Wednesday, July 4, and most DC city services will be suspended, including parking regulations and trash pick-up However, the Nationals will play home games at Nationals Park July 3-8, and parking regulations in that neighborhood will be enforced daily, including July 4. Vehicles violating these restrictions will be ticketed and towed.

Other parking regulations, including expired meters, residential parking and street sweeping, will be suspended for the holiday.

Sanitation services will be suspended for the holiday and will resume Thursday, July 5:
  • In once-a-week trash and recycling collection neighborhoods collections will “slide” to the next day, so Wednesday’s collections will be made Thursday, Thursday’s collections will be made Friday and so on.
  • In twice-a-week collection neighborhoods, normal collections will be made Monday and Tuesday; however, Thursday’s collections will be made Friday and Friday’s collections will be made Saturday.
  • Street sweeping will be suspended Wednesday, July 4 so motorists will not need to move their cars that day.
