The D.C. Council’s Committee on Public Works and Transportation (Councilmember Jim Graham, Chairman) has announced that it will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, November 17 at 2:00 p.m. to consider a resolution that would approve the District Department of Transportation’s (DDOT) recently submitted DC Streetcar System Plan. The public roundtable will be held at the John A. Wilson Building at 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Room 412. The Council must approve the plan before DDOT may receive $34.5 million of the roughly $50 million in capital funds the Council approved for streetcars in May.
