Robberies, assaults, bullets… these are all something that can have a devastating effect on quiet and friendly neighborhoods, like Brookland, Woodridge, and Langdon.
But it can also have a devastating effect on a Main Street.
Kyle Todd, Executive Director of the RIA Main Street, had something stern to say about another instance of violence in the area: a bullet hole in the window of a newly completed facade improvement for a local business. See his post on Facebook below:
In case you were also wondering… the event “Light up RIA” is an effort by the RIA Main Street and the Friends of RIA NE to bring the community together in an effort to combat the uptick in violence in the area! Come out to the event on Monday, Nov 2nd from 6:30pm to 7:30pm! More info here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/light-up-ria-tickets-19302665793
