And a Look Back… Crepes on the Corner to Apply for Liquor License

Tuesday, May 15

Eastern Market Community Advisory Committee meets in EM North Hall at 7:00pm.  Watch for an update on Councilmember Tommy Wells’ Eastern Market legislation. (The City Council Committee on the Whole has scheduled a public hearing for this measure for Thursday, May 31, 2012, at 11:00am (may be re-scheduled for June 7th at 10am) in Room 500 of the John A. Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Avenue,  NW. The purpose of the public hearing is to discuss and provide the public with an opportunity to comment on the proposed legislation.)  For more information:

Also, look for an update on the status of the plan for a weekday Farmer’s Market at Eastern Market.  Starting so late in the season has presented difficulties in attracting produce vendors.  Eastern Market Manager Barry Margeson is focusing on attracting vendors outside of the usual weekend lineup, hoping to institute a Tuesday week day market.

ANC 6B Special Call Meeting on Reservation 13 will be held 7:00pm – 8:00pm at St. Coletta’s.  Staff from the Deputy Mayor’s Office for Planning and Economic Development will likely reveal a plan for reopening the request for expressions of interest, using this venue to solicit community feedback on what uses for the site should be included in the request.

Tuesday, May 15

CHRS Board of Directors meets at 6:30pm in Capitol Hill Townhomes, 750 6th Street, SE.  The Board will hear the first report on the success of the Society’s main fund raiser – the CHRS House Tour, which took place this past weekend.  Last year saw a drop off in attendance at the popular Mother’s Day event.

LOOKING AHEAD…

Crepes on the Corner showed up at the ANC6B meeting last Tuesday, offering that they would begin the process for applying for a liquor license for their 15th and C Streets SE restaurant.  That process will unfold over the next few months.

ANC6B’s Outreach and Community Service Taskforce will hold a meeting on Wednesday, May 23 on vacant and blighted properties.  If you have one on your block, call it to the attention of your ANC Commissioner.  http://www.anc6b.org/cms.html

ANC6B’s By-Laws Taskforce met last Thursday to revise the ANC’s outdated by-laws, with an eye toward making it easier for residents with full time jobs and families to serve on the ANC.  Currently, the structure of monthly meetings and committee membership makes it difficult for anyone other than retired individuals to easily serve on the commission.  By the way, the filing date for running for the ANC starts early this year.  The filing period is from July 9 to August 8.  A map of the slightly altered Single Member Districts for ANC6B can be found here:  https://sites.google.com/a/dc.gov/redistricting/updated-smd-and-anc-maps-mid-december-2011
