How CAG Works for You
On behalf of all the residents of Georgetown, CAG’s board, staff and many dedicated volunteers play a key role in making Georgetown a safe and vibrant community. We continue to strengthen the public safety program, plant many new trees, and continue our strong advocacy for the neighborhood on historic preservation, regulation of bars and restaurants, policing, trash, traffic, parking and other community issues.
We produced three Summer Concerts in the Parks, and held a wide range of interesting meetings and programs.
- In May our annual meeting was hosted by Dumbarton House and featured Mayor Gray and Councilmember Jack Evans for the presentation of the prestigious CAG awards to outstanding Georgetowners.
- September took us to the lovely Grace Church for an insightful presentation by the Georgetown Ministry Center about homelessness in our community.
- The newly reopened Tony and Joes Seafood Place at Washington Harbour hosted us in October to hear from a panel of real estate experts providing fascinating information about residential real estate.
- In November, former Redskins General Manager and current Georgetown resident Charley Casserly regaled us with football stories at the massive new Nike store.
- Almost 400 neighbors Put on the Glitz (and their dancing shoes) for our Georgetown Gala at the Russian Embassy.
- In January six Oral History interviewees delighted a crowd of over 100 with memories and stories of Georgetown past at historic Dumbarton Church.
CAG’s board and many volunteers have been extremely active. They are constantly involved in key discussions and/or review boards regarding traffic, the University, parking, trash, rodents, recycling and historic preservation – all to responsibly represent the best interests of our over 1300 members. Crime is down in the residential areas through our Public Safety Committee’s efforts – including an increased number of key block captains, thanks to Diane Colasanto. We have a new pilot program of putting surveillance cameras on residential streets. The Historic Preservation and Zoning Committee have been in discussions with the Office of Planning to discuss and shape the new zoning regulations that will affect Georgetown’s open-space and development. The ABC Committee continues its diligent work and Chair Karen Cruse is representing CAG on Councilman Graham’s task force on ABC issues. Our Friends of the Georgetown Library conducts popular book sales to benefit the library.
Your membership dues ensure that we can continue our programs and advocacy into 2013 and launch new efforts.
