After the murder of a businessman, the Charles Village Community Benefits District was formed in 1994, and we were promised 24/7 security patrols. We have had numerous murders since including 2 a week ago, but security patrols were discontinued several years ago, and just recently we got minimal security patrols. Instead, our surtax money is spent on turning us into "Trashcan Village" (and it took CVCBD a year to replace mesh trash cans that were feeding our neighborhood rat population). CVCBD needs to use our surtax money to give us the security patrols we were promised. We have too much violent crime In Charles Village, and CVCBD needs to do something about it.

In Remington, we need a giant pit to throw the crackheads, litter bugs, drug dealers and Joan Floyd into...

The alarming demise of the once vibrant and active Belvedere improvement Association (BIA) has left over 500 households without neighborhood representation at a critical juncture. The Senator Theatre remains shuttered and blighted in appearance in some unspecified state of flux, the developers and politicians are now making their PUD expansion moves across to the west side of York Road and shoving Pleasant Hope Church out of the community for a planned parking garage. The supposed *umbrella community organization* the York Road Parnership (YRP) is a none too stealthy "BDC Bill" Henry political committee operating under a fake shroud of representing all, yet promotes the developers and the BDC interests over community resident issues. A replacement for the defunct BIA is sorely needed to represent the residential communities surrounding the Belvedere Square distric, or they will continue to be steamrolled by the BDC backed, development interests and The Square's as yet unidentified new owner.
