Riding back from this morning’s 23 Annual Sallie Mae 10K, I noticed that several churches on 15th Street NW had parking cones, signs, and even attendants out to guide parishioners to proper parking spaces.
Might this be the beginning of a logical truce between Logan Circle homeowners and out of state DC churchgoers? Could the churches be doing what the homeowners wanted all along – respecting local traffic laws or at least practicing common curtsey?
Maybe this is why Mayor Williams gave a moratorium on cracking down on illegal church parking. Maybe churches in DC are starting to realize that their congregations, once nearby and now out in PG County, don’t vote or pay taxes in DC. Maybe they might be getting a little sense.
