July 9, 2014 Monthly Public Meeting Summary*

COMMISSIONER ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Commissioner Walt Cain encouraged residents to consider running for a seat on the Commission during the upcoming November 4th elections; Cain will not be running for re-election for 2F-02. Prospective ANC candidates must turn in their nomination petitions with signatures by August 6. For more information about the election process, visit http://anc.dc.gov/page/anc-elections.

COMMMUNITY FORUM

  • Sherri Kimbel of Councilmember Jack Evans’ office provided Ward 2 updates about: the fixed crosswalks at the 1300 block of Massachusetts Ave, NW near the Thomas House; ongoing efforts by the Councilmember’s office to have DDOT infill existing flexipad coverings around trees with brick on the 1300 block of Rhode Island Ave, NW; and upcoming Ward 2 nights at both the Stadium and Shakespeare Theatre. Visit http://www.jackevans.org/ for details about the upcoming Ward 2 nights.
  • Sgt. Terestre of Metropolitan Police Department PSA 307 presented the monthly crime report. Total violent crime is down over the same period last year, but property crimes are up—especially thefts. Thefts of bicycles and thefts from autos continue to be pervasive. Terestre noted two crimes of opportunity in PSA 307 related to unlocked doors at private residences. Bottom line: most crimes in the PSA are crimes of opportunity. Terestre encouraged residents to lock their doors and windows, keep valuables out of sight when in their cars, and to use heavy-duty bike locks. Up-to-date crime stats and data can be found on MPD’s website.
  • Martin Booker of Martha’s Table’s Food & Nutrition team gave a presentation about the organization’s plans to implement a program with Arcadia Foods to host a weekly fresh food market at Garrison Elementary School on Wednesday afternoons (4-6pm) through October 2014.

ABRA POLICY COMMITTEE (APC) REPORT

  • The next APC meeting will be Wednesday, July 16, 7pm at the N Street Village (1333 N St, NW) 2nd Floor Multipurpose Room.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE (CDC) REPORT

  • The Commission voted unanimously (7-0) to adopt the CDC report from its June 25th meeting. The report included the Committee’s recommendation for HPRB concept, massing, and design approval for 917 M St, NW and the related pedestrian bridge; opposition to the HPRB design proposal for 1212 9th St, NW (part of the same project); and opposition to the BZA request for a rear yard setback exception for 1738 14th St, NW.
  • The architect for 1738 14th St, NW asked Commissioner Cain that the CDC to reconsider the applicant’s request, noting that the CDC voted on a variance request instead of a setback request (the latter which does not require demonstration of economic hardship). Cain invited the applicants to return to the CDC for re-consideration at the July 30th CDC meeting.
  • Commissioner Greg Melcher shared an update about the ANC’s reporting to HPO of developer CAS Riegler’s unpermitted use of horizontal siding on its 1250 9th St, NW “Colonel” project instead of stucco.  Melcher will continue to report updates as he hears back from HPO.

OLD BUSINESS

An application form for future ANC 2F grant funds will be available by the August regular monthly public meeting.

NEW BUSINESS
