CM McDuffie's Response

  After several days of community outcry, CM McDuffie has provided an initial response on his facebook page on the issue of the Ft. Totten Trail.  Hopefully we get updates on the status, and get the publicity that other neighborhoods get with their problems.  I'd like to extend a thank you to CM McDuffie for hearing our concerns.  We look forward to a more detailed response in the near future.  This initial response is not the end, I urge all of us to continue pressuring our elected representatives until an acceptable solution is resolved.  

  Our office is aware of the recent spike in crime near the Ft. Totten trail. We have been proactive in addressing this issue and have been in contact with both Park Police and Congresswomen Norton’s office to ensure its addressed appropriately. We have specifically asked for more police presence, increased lighting and a more aggressive vegetation management plan. As we receive inform
ation from Park Police and the Congresswomen’s office we will update the community. This issue is a top priority for our office and we will work vigorously to ensure residents can continue to feel safe when using the trail.

If you have further questions, please contact Tim Clark.
