My husband and I have lived at 13th and W for the past 12 years. We're raising our two children here. We can now walk less than two blocks to get groceries at the organic market that also sells wine and beer. We can take the kids to eat every night of the week at family-friendly restaurants that could not stay open without their liquor licenses. My husband and I can go have a couple of drinks and listen to live music on date night without ever leaving the neighborhood. Imagine U Street without Busboys and Poets, Dukem or the 9:30 Club. Now imagine how much more awesome it will be with a Trader Joe’s :-). The addition of new businesses and new residents have made this neighborhood more fun, more interesting, more attractive, and SAFER.

Because that neighborhood is great. If you want to ruin it again why not just have some more riots?

I've lived in the neighborhood for 30 years, the new liveliness is what I've always hoped for in my neighborhood. Hopefully a few naysayers won't slow things down.

U street is a thriving neighborhood and we need businesses in the District build our local economy. There may be issues (i.e., trash, parking, etc.) that need to be addressed , but a moratorium is not the answer.

This moratorium will just keep terrible restaurants and bars in business because of lack of competition. Also, bars and restaurants in my neighborhood are always insanely crowded. Please help us by not doing this awful moratorium

Imposing a liquor license moratorium on the Logan and U St. neighborhoods would stifle the vibrant, organic growth of these areas and leave their residents without the diverse dining and nightlife options that have been responsible for revitalizing this part of the District.

I regularly visit the U St corridor for happy hour, dinner, and events. I want to see the vibrancy grow, not stagnate.
