Mayors Weekly Press Briefing


“Uptown/Downtown” is a DCN series featuring positive stories about people, communities and businesses in the District that are the life blood of our city -- yet they often flourish behind the headlines. The series gives citizens a chance to discover these many diverse stories that thrive along our Great Streets and main streets -- from small businesses to grand openings -- from Little League sports to Major League games – from cultural events to community affairs -- and even the latest “green” or “sustainable” projects within our city. In short, “Uptown/Downtown” is another opportunity for DCN to share more good news about the District of Columbia - whether it’s happening uptown, downtown -- eastside or westside!
