Membership Meeting

DCCA Membership Meeting Recap

Monday April 7, 2014


Program


Representatives from DC Water spoke about a proposal to modify its Long Term Control Plan (LTCP) to solve the problem of combined sewer overflows into Rock Creek, the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers. The new plan incorporates a large investment in green infrastructure, but will also eliminate the planned Rock Creek Park tunnel and reduce the size of the Potomac tunnel in Georgetown. Sarah Rispin of Potomac Riverkeepers presented a counterpoint about why many environmentalists are not convinced that the new solution will be as effective as the original plan.


Members appreciated the in-depth presentations and the opportunity to discuss many viewpoints. 


Supporting Our Community



DCCA Community Grant Applications
 
DCCA makes grants from funds raised by the annual House Tour for the activities and projects of local organizations that further DCCA’s mission. Examples of recent DCCA grants include those to neighborhood organizations that serve individuals who are homeless or have mental illness, such as Charlie’s Place and Green Door, grants for programs and events to Dupont Circle Village and Dupont Festival, and a grant to the Ross Elementary School PTA for playground equipment.
 
DCCA’s Community Grants Policy and Grant Application Form are now available on the DCCA website. Applications for grants to support an organization’s ongoing activities are due by December 1st for consideration for funding at the Board of Director’s meeting in January.  Organizations may also submit grant applications for one-time events or needs throughout the year. The Board will act on such applications on a rolling basis, with decisions typically provided within two months.

Right Tree Right Place Program - Request Your Tree!


Casey Trees is offering 250 trees on a first come first serve basis to District of Columbia homeowners through its "Right Tree Right Place" tree planting program.


You can request up to two trees and schedule a consultation visit with Casey Trees to ensure that the optimal trees and planting sites are chosen for your property. Casey Trees then will plant your selected trees during the spring or fall planting seasons. There is a $50 co-pay per tree payable to Casey Trees ($250 value per tree for consultation and planting), which is required prior to planting.
