Residents of this upper northwest D.C. neighborhood are weighing in on how to make their local streets more people-friendly.

DDOT is holding a listening session in upper northwest D.C. to find out how to improve neighborhood streets. It's doing this in several neighborhoods across the city as part of its "livability" initiative.
But at this listening session, it seems like everyone has a different idea of what the "L" word really means.
Some think it's about culture; for others, it's quality of life.
"Essentially, it's how can we make a street more attractive for people, for all modes of transportation to use," says DDOT Transportation Planner Anna Chamberlin.
Chamberlin says that could mean everything from new stop signs and speed bumps to calm traffic, to better lighting and more trees.
DDOT's next listening session is scheduled for June 22 at the Anacostia Library in southeast D.C.
