Resident Launches Blog So You Don’t Have to Go to ANC Meetings
A new neighborhood blog has launched in the District to fill the void of the now-defunct Borderstan.
Short Articles About Long Meetings—an ode to the lengthy and, at times, arguably superfluous nature of Advisory Neighborhood Commission meetings—will cover neighborhood meetings in the Dupont, Logan Circle, and U Street areas.
Founder David McAuley, the blog's sole contributor, says he hopes to post between five and seven articles a week on these meetings and other neighborhood association gatherings. McAuley, a teacher by day, has lived in and out of D.C. for about 30 years and is a former contributor to Borderstan.
"It's something that helps me get in touch with my community and meet my neighbors," McAuley says.
He's got two posts up so far, the latest about the ANC2B's endorsement of a weakened liquor license moratorium on 17th Street NW. If you'd rather not attend such a meeting, neighborhood news junkies, read up.
