ANC 6B’s February Planning and Zoning Committee meeting will take place tonight, Feb. 1, 7:00 pm at Cesar Chavez Public Charter School (714 – 722 11th St. SE – enter on the 11th Street side).
As I mentioned last week, there are two Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) cases on tonight’s agenda that impact the 700 block of 15th St. SE, the 1400 and 1500 blocks of Pennsylvania Ave. SE, and the 1400 & 1500 blocks of Potomac Ave. SE.
The first case is a request for a two-year extension on a waiver granted to Douglas Development at the old KFC site (1442 Pennsylvania Avenue SE). In Dec. 2008, ANC 6B supported Douglas Development’s application for variances from floor area, rear yard and parking requirements. The original waivers must be renewed by the BZA, and ANC 6B will consider whether to support a two year extension in February.
The second case involves a proposed 5-unit residential development at 732 15th Street SE (currently a laundromat). Owner Gary Cohen is asking for variances from lot occupancy and off-street parking requirements. The lot is configured as such that the owner cannot legally provide off-street parking via Freedom Way SE.
Please bring your comments, views and questions to tonight’s meeting. I hope to see you there!
