The following is a summary of official actions* taken by the ANC 2F Community Development Committee (CDC) at its April 22, 2015 meeting.
- The CDC voted unanimously (12-0) to recommend that the full ANC send a letter to HPRB in opposition of the updated design submitted for concept and massing of the proposed two-unit, three story project at 1001 O St, NW, due to lack of sufficient detail for a project of this type, and lack of conformity with the historic details in the neighborhood. The Applicant had initially presented to the CDC at the March 2015 meeting. The Committee unanimously felt the design was still inconsistent with the aesthetic context and architectural character of the neighborhood. Additionally, the Committee felt there was insufficient design detail in order to support the project in its entirety.
- The CDC voted unanimously (12-0) to recommend that the full ANC support the general concept of installing a parklet in the street in front of Slipstream (1333 14th St, NW), provided that the parklet proposal return to the CDC for a full and through design review with community comment. Ryan Fleming, co-owner of Slipstream, solicited the Committee’s initial thoughts about his potential participation in DDOT’s pilot parklet program, which consists of placing 3 or 4 parklets (miniature parks constructed on raised platforms that would occupy public space the size of a parking spot in the parking lane of a street) in highly trafficked pedestrian areas of the city.
*All actions taken by the CDC will be presented at the May 6, 2015 ANC 2F regular monthly public meeting for consideration and a final vote by the full Commission.
