May 14, 2014 Public Meeting Summary*

The next regular monthly public meeting for ANC 2F will be Wednesday, June 4, 7:00pm at the Washington Plaza Hotel.

 

COMMISSIONER ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Commissioner Cain followed up on a recent post to ANC 2F’s blog, announcing that ANC 2F residents who live at RPP-eligible addresses can now apply for a Visitor Parking Pass (VPP) through DDOT. A red button on the ANC 2F homepage will direct site visitors to more information about the application process.
  • Commissioner Fanning announced the Annual Logan Circle Alley Party, which will take place on Saturday, May 31, from 5pm to midnight, in the alley just south of the 1300 block of Rhode Island Avenue NW. Fanning, who is part of the organizing committee, noted that all are welcome to attend.

COMMUNITY FORUM

  • Sgt. Terrestre of Metropolitan Police Department PSA 307 presented the monthly crime report. As has been the case for the past several months, overall crime is down over the same period last year. However, property crimes (especially automobile break-ins) remain high. Up-to-date crime stats and data can be found on MPD’s website.
  • Lt. Linda Wingate, who was also present, shared that earlier in the day the Detective’s Office closed a case concerning a robbery at the corner market on 11th & N Streets, NW.
  • In response to a question from Commissioner Dahle, Wingate explained that the Department had collected a significant amount of information about a shooting at Johnson & R Streets, NW on April 27. The investigation is actively being worked and no suspects are currently in custody.
  • Evelyn Israel from DDOT announced an upcoming meeting, the final in a series of three, to explore the possibility of a North-South corridor streetcar along Georgia Avenue from Takoma Park/Silver Spring to the Southwest Waterfront. More information about the process, including upcoming dates for the Series Three meetings, is available on www.dcstreetcar.com
  • Ibrahim Mumin with City Center DC announced an upcoming Job Fair on June 19 from 10am-2pm (location TBD) for employment opportunities at the retail stores and restaurants coming to the downtown development.

ABRA POLICY COMMITTEE (APC) REPORT

  • The Commission voted unanimously (7-0) to enter into a Settlement Agreement (SA) with Lost and Found (1240 9th St, NW). Commissioner Greg Melcher, in whose Single Member District Lost and Found is located, relayed that he and the applicant were able to quickly arrive to agreement over an SA at an ABC Board meeting.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE (CDC) REPORT

  • The CDC committee report for its April 30 meeting was adopted by unanimous consent after the question was divided with respect to the public space permit application referred to below. The report included the Committee’s recommendation for HPRB concept and massing approval for 917 M St, NW & 1212 9th St, NW; HPRB concept and massing approval for 1738 14th St, NW; support for the DHCD-funded renovation of 1333 N St, NW (N Street Village); and HPRB concept and massing approval for 1308-1310 Q St, NW.
  • After extensive discussion among the Committee and numerous attendee comments, the Commission voted 7-0 to oppose Crystal Valet’s DDOT public space application for a valet staging area at 1406 Corcoran St, NW. Cain noted the Commission’s concern over the application’s inaccurate request for a staging area at 1406 Corcoran St, which is not the actual address of the staging area being requested (and is instead the address of a private residence). The Commission echoed community concerns about having a valet staging area on the narrow one-way residential street, noting a strong preference instead for a valet staging area on 14th St in front of the restaurant(s) seeking the service.

EDUCATION COMMITTEE REPORT

  • The Commission voted 6-0-1 to support a resolution presented by ANC 2B Commissioner Stephanie Waltz, urging DCPS to provide access to a system of quality matter-of-right public schools from Kindergarten through Grade 12 for all students. ANC 2F joins five other ANCs that have already passed the resolution. Waltz hopes to gain city-wide ANC support of the resolution.
  • Ed Committee Co-chair Evelyn Boyd Simmons shared that the DCPS Head Start Parent Policy Council, an advisory committee to the Deputy Mayor for Education on which she sits as the Ward 2 representative, will release its report on the state of the city’s education system in June.
  • Simmons also announced the upcoming Ward 2 Education Network meeting on Saturday, May 17, at which parents will have the opportunity to meet principals and representatives from at least seven District schools.

OLD BUSINESS

  • Commissioner Melcher reported on protest proceedings with The American (1209-1213 10th St, NW). The ANC had previously approved entering into a Settlement Agreement (SA) with the applicant. However, before the agreement was signed on behalf of the ANC, the applicant’s petition period was reopened because of placarding irregularities. After an ANC vote to protest, Commissioner Melcher attempted to address additional concerns of residents by way of modifications to the SA with the applicant. However, he stated that the application was likely to proceed all the way to a formal protest hearing at which time the ANC risked losing the license terms it had already attained. Without commissioner objections, Commissioner Raymond signed the previously approved SA, for which no vote was required.

NEW BUSINESS

  • The Commission voted unanimously (7-0) to author a letter to the City Council making the Council aware of ANC 2F’s opposition to all proposed or pending legislation that would grant Ward 6 residents the ability to park in Ward 2. Current legislation proposed by Councilmember Wells to that effect was the impetus for the Commission’s vote on the matter.

Visitor Parking Pass Program for ANC 2F?

VisitorParking

At ANC 2F’s October meeting, Councilman Jack Evans said that if the ANC passed a recommendation for a visitor parking pass in ANC 2F, he would ensure that it is implemented. The plan currently in place for Wards 1, 3, 4, 5, and parts of 6 provides for one pass per household. These passes are designed to allow guests of District residents to park for more than two hours on residential parking zoned streets. The passes are only valid during the hours of residential parking enforcement and in the same zone and ANC boundary as the residence where the pass was issued.

ANC 2F wants to know if there is interest in having a visitor parking program within the ANC and we want to hear from you! Please contact your local ANC commissioner (see list below) and plan to join us at the October Community Development meeting on Wednesday, October 23 at 7:00pm at the Washington Plaza Hotel.

Director of the City Office of Planning at Tomorrow’s ANC Meeting

Dear Friends,
ANC 2F is pleased to announce that Harriet Tregoning, Director of the City Office of Planning, will be joining us at the April ANC meeting (Wednesday, April 3 at 7:00 p.m. at the Washington Plaza Hotel) to discuss the ongoing re-write of the city’s zoning code.  This process represents the first time that the zoning code has been rewritten since it was first adopted in 1958.  There have been over 1,000 amendments to the code since its adoption, but the current rewrite process will be the first comprehensive overhaul of the code in over 50 years.
The rewrite represents a vision for the future that will have a significant impact on the city and our neighborhood.  Director Tregoning has graciously accepted the ANC’s invitation to attend this Wednesday’s meeting, give a brief presentation on the rewrite process, and take questions from the ANC and the community.  Given this great opportunity, the ANC encourages residents to 1) check out the website for the zoning rewrite project to learn about the process and proposed changes (http://zoningdc.org/ ); and 2) spread the word to the community so that residents can attend and hear first hand of the proposed changes.  If you cannot attend Wednesday’s meeting, but have questions about the rewrite project, please feel free to email me directly and I will present them at the meeting.
The significance of this project and the opportunity to interact directly with Director Tregoning cannot be overstated.  The ANC would like to thank Sherri Kimble from Councilmember Jack Evans’ office for arranging the Director’s attendance and offering the residents of ANC 2F this great opportunity.
