CBCC is pleased to have successfully advocated for community benefits for our ANC6D residents as follows:
A. Benefits from the District of Columbia - Bill 20-833
Advocating to Revitalize Randall Community Center:
The Community Enrichment Committee, chaired by Eve Brooks, has consistently advocated for several categories of direly-needed funding for the complete revitalization of Randall Community Center. Working with our ANC6D, 2d representative, Stacy Cloyd, our community partners, Bernstein Company, Telesis Corporation, and Sasha Bruce Youthwork, Inc., our friends from the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly Youth Taskforce, and other local leaders, we have combined our talents and resources to ensure that Randall's Community Center is not left behind as the PlayDC park renovations near their completion this May 2015.
We are advocating for three key items to ensure Randall Community Center thrives in the long run:
1. Annual funding for programming in the DC Parks and Recreation's budget at a minimum of $350,000;
2. Capitol funding in the Department of General Services budget for interior renovations at a minimum of $1 million;
3. Passing of regulations to permit sliding-scale fees to be charged at community centers like Randall, for certain services and programs to help raise funds internally and become more self-sustaining.
WE NEED YOUR VOICE! On May 1st at 11 am in room 500 at the Wilson Building, Mary Cheh's Committee on Transportation and the Environment will hold a budget hearing for DC Parks and Recreation. CBCC will be testifying on the above three points. Please sign up above to have your name added to the witness list, or contact Felicia Couts - email@example.com for additional information.
