COMMISSIONER ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Commissioner Raymond announced that the D.C. Board of Elections special process to fill two vacant Commissioner seats had concluded. Stephanie Dahle, Publications Coordinator at the Brookings Institution, will be the new Commissioner for ANC 2F-03 and Kevin Deeley, an attorney for the federal government, will be the new Commissioner for ANC 2F-08. Both individuals have yet to be sworn in before officially assuming their positions.

COMMUNITY FORUM

  • Democratic Mayoral nominee Muriel Bowser addressed meeting attendees, thanking voters for their support and pledging to address the needs of every ANC in the District as she looked toward the November general election. Bowser will be meeting with Councilmember Jack Evans next week to gain a full grasp of Ward 2 issues. Bowser expounded upon the work of the City Council’s Economic Development Committee, which she chairs, and mentioned that over the next 50 days the City Council would be focused on Mayor Gray’s proposed budget.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE (CDC) REPORT

Cain noted that ANC 2F residents will have to proactively opt in to the program either online or via phone, and that the Commission will have to vote again on ANC 2F’s continued participation in the program at the end of Fiscal Year 2014.

Proposed Modifications to Settlement Agreement Template

At the ANC 2F ABRA Policy Committee’s (APC) upcoming meeting on Wednesday, March 19, 2014 (7pm at N Street Village – 1333 N St, NW, 2nd floor Multipurpose Room), the Committee members will vote on and adopt modifications to the template Settlement Agreement (SA) used by ANC 2F when negotiating with an ABC licensee.

Click here to view a draft version of the SA template that will be considered by the Committee. Community attendance at the meet this Wednesday and input is encouraged. A draft copy of the entire meeting agenda is available here.

What is a Settlement Agreement (SA)?

A Settlement Agreement (formerly known as a voluntary agreement) is a binding contract reached between an ABC licensee and a protestant to the license (often an ANC or another community group). The purpose of the SA is to address community concerns regarding an applicant’s proposed or current operations and to avoid any potential problems that could occur after issuance of an alcoholic beverage license. The finalized SA becomes a part of the ABC license and provides guidance to licensees regarding how the terms of their licenses are enforced, in particular, after a court order.
