A couple of quick updates on the Eastern Branch Boys & Girls Club Building, the city-owned building located at 17th and C Streets SE:
- Community Tour Delayed – During the October 5 ANC 6B Hill East Task Force meeting, the task force agreed to work with the DC Department of General Services and Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells’ office to set up a community tour of the building. Unfortunately, the Dept. of General Services has determined that the building can not be opened for public tours due to the presence of bird waste on the building’s upper floors (pigeons were flying into the building through an open window that has since been boarded up). Hopefully, we will be able to host a community tour at some point next year after the building is cleaned.
- Follow Up Meeting – ANC 6B’s Hill East Task Force will hold a follow up meeting to discuss the future of the Eastern Branch Building on Saturday, December 10, 10 am – 12 pm at Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, 1636 East Capitol Street NE. The goal of the meeting is to get additional feedback from residents on potential uses. I’ll post the meeting agenda next week. If you are unable to attend the Dec. 10 meeting, please e-mail me or post your comments/feedback below.
