- Late last week, The Washington Post reported that Georgetown University is looking at Hill East/Reservation 13 as a potential site for a new campus. According to the article, a request for proposals issued by the university mentions the institution’s desire to relocate the school’s “Medical Center Zone,” a reference to the GU hospital and medical campus. It is an interesting idea that could spur development at Res. 13, though the city would certainly have to amend the Reservation 13 master plan to make it happen. I’m eager to learn more and to get reaction/feedback from residents.
- A reminder that DDOT’s two public charrette meetings on the 17th & 19th Streets Safety Improvement Project are on Monday, July 30, 6 pm – 8 pm at Eastern High School (1700 East Capitol Street NE) and Tuesday, July 31, 6 pm – 8 pm at Pilgrim AME Church (612 17th Street NE). Please plan to attend one of these two meetings. DDOT will be asking for resident feedback on various traffic calming strategies for these two corridors.
- ANC 6B’s Bylaws Review Working Group will hold its final meeting tonight, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at the Hill Center (921 Pennsylvania Avenue SE). The working group will be finalizing a major revision to the ANC 6B bylaws. I’ll plan to post the revised bylaws and other key documents by the end of the month. The Commission will consider the revised bylaws and proposed standing rules during a special call meeting on Monday, September 17. More information to come.
- Mark your calendars! The residents of the 1500 and 1600 blocks of D Street SE will be holding their annual block party on Saturday, August 4. I’ll post additional details as the date approaches.
Note that ANC 6B will not be holding meetings in the month of August. The next full commission meeting will be Tuesday, Sept. 11, 7 pm at the Hill Center (921 Pennsylvania Avenue SE).
