Langston's oldest neighbor Ms. Dorothy Estep turned 100 on Aug. 1st. Ms. Estep has lived in our community for more than 70 years and "thanks god for every day."
Ms. Estep walks the neighborhood daily, often picking up litter along the way and sharing a kind word with neighbors. She received flowers, cards and well wishes from neighbors, the Langston Civic Association, Councilmember McDuffie and Mayor Bowser. The mayor sent an official letter congratulating her on the years she has spent dedicated to making life better for her neighbors and family.

This is not your last chance to speak up...
Thanks so much to everyone who took time out of their busy schedule to attend the Langston Civic Association's community roundtable with Mayor Bowser. These meetings are only effective when neighbors show up and address the issues that are important to them and make it clear that we care.
Please know that this will not be the last of these conversations with the mayor or councilmember and that every single issue addressed will receive follow up from the mayor's staff as well as our civic association president, Sydelle Moore. If you have additional issues, questions or comments, please email us.
There is already a map of sidewalk and street repairs in the hands of our Mayor's Office of Community Relations as well as DDOT to address the specific concerns raised last night. MPD will also be attending the next Langston Civic Association meeting to continue to work on our concerns about recent shootings in the area. The Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement has also dispatched members of their response team to try and help with getting appropriate violence intervention staff to track down and mediate between the parties involved in recent shootings.
The civic association meetings are open to all and we look forward to continuing to work together to enhance civic pride, community engagement and safety. OUR NEXT MEETING WILL BE TUESDAY, MARCH 6, 2018 AT 6 PM at 2109 Maryland Ave NE (rear entrance).
President, Langston Civic Association
