It is no exaggeration to state that the Washington Highlands neighborhood has not had a civic association representing the entire neighborhood in nearly 30 years. During recent years, some of the homeowners in the southern part of Washington Highlands formed a civic association to represent that portion of the neighborhood but it is my understanding that it is defunct. The Anacostia Coordinating Council (ACC) will launch an effort to form the Washington Highlands Civic Association on Monday, July 29th, 6 pm to 8 pm, at the Merrick Center, 4275 4th Street, SE. Your participation in this effort will be critical and please forward this invitation to your Washington Highlands neighbors.
The ACC thanks Advisory Neighborhood Commission 8D chairwoman Olivia Henderson for her assistance in organizing the July 29th meeting. A flier will be available by the end of this week.
Yours for community progress,
ACC Executive Director
