CB1’s Transportation chair,
Reggie Thomas: “We are requesting, urging a denial of the application.”
At CB1’s February 26 meeting, Reggie Thomas, who chairs the Board’s Transportation & Street Activity Committee, explained that, “a number of neighbors come out and express their concern. This is an event that has been running for the better part of the last 20 years, but we have a concern about what has happened over the last two decades, with the same route, has not kept pace with the development of our community over those years.”
More than 10,000 runners participated in last year’s event.
