D.C.'s 311 system will soon consolidate requests for information and repairs. And its 911 system is now geolocating emergency calls from cell phones.

A small church in Bethesda Md., is protesting a proposed development atop a plot believed to be the site of a former African American cemetery. The history of the spot is still in question, and the church and other community members say they don’t trust the Montgomery County Planning Department’s plans for an archaeological study. The development is part of what some in the community see as a larger trend by the County to sacrifice history –especially that of African Americans – in order to push forward economic development. Kojo chats with the interests on both sides of the story about how to preserve and recognize the past in a changing region.
