Reminder: Streetcar meeting tonight at 6:30

Reminder that the Streetcar meeting hosted by local ANCs, Councilmembers Tommy Wells and Harry Thomas, Jr., and DDOT Director Gabe Klein and Streetcar Director Scott Kubly will be tonight at 6:30 at 1299 Neal Street (just north of Florida Ave, near 13th Street.

This will be your best opportunity to join with those officials in support of the semi-wireless plan they have to get the streetcars up and running soon. The tracks are already mostly laid along the north side of H Street and city officials have said they hope to have the cars in place and ready for use running from Union Station to the eastern end of the H Street Corridor by 2012, but a couple smaller groups have expressed opposition to streetcars recently claiming to be concerned that the any overhead wires might obstruct views of the city's varied historical monuments and of the U.S. Capitol.
