the clean team vs. snowmageddon
The MVT CID Clean Team took on the January blizzard and the storms that followed and received kudos and thank you’s from all around the Triangle for their hard work and dedication. Members of the team stayed overnight at the CID’s office throughout the blizzard, working to stay ahead of the blowing snow and keeping sidewalks and ramp cuts clear.  Our property owners did an excellent job as well, complying with the District’s new Winter Sidewalk Safety Act, and contacting the Clean Team to ask for a hand (and a shovel) when the owners themselves couldn’t get to the property. The Winter Sidewalk Safety Act imposes a fine on District property owners who fail to remove snow and ice from the sidewalks, curb cuts and curb ramps abutting their property within 8 hours of day light after snow has stopped falling.

solar panels installed at city vista

More than 100 solar panels have been installed at the K at City Vista, completing a two-year project coordinated by the building’s condo board that is designed to make the popular condominium more sustainable. The project was done through the Ward 6 Solar Co-op, which gave the condo a 30% discount off the price of the system. K at City Vista condo board president and ANC 6E Commissioner, Marge Maceda, said the system should pay for itself in approximately five years and will lower condo fees for the building’s residents. For more information on the solar panel install, click here to read the article by DC Sun.
