On Tuesday, February 18, ANC 6B’s Hill East Task Force will hold a meeting to discuss next steps on the Eastern Branch Building, the former Boys & Girls Club building located at 261 17th Street SE. The meeting will be from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm at St. Coletta of Greater Washington (1901 Independence Ave SE).
The DC Department of General Services will soon issue a Request for Expressions of Interest for organizations interested in the vacant building. At the meeting, Michelle Chin of DGS will talk about her department’s plans and seek community feedback on the RFEI. Attendees will also hear from Chuck Burger who chaired Ward 6 Councilmember Tommy Wells’ Eastern Branch Task Force.
All residents and organizations interested in the building should attend this meeting. In particular, I want to encourage residents who live near the building to attend and weigh in. To learn more about the building, just type “Eastern Branch” in the search box.
Could someone who attended the meeting post a summary of what was said. I was unable to get off work, but can see the building from my living room windows and am interested.
I’ve now posted a recap at https://flahaven6b.com/2014/02/19/eastern-branch-building-meeting-recap-next-steps/. Thanks for asking!
