The Week Ahead……ANC Schedule Dominated by Hine/Liquor License Renewals
by Larry Janezich
May 14, Tuesday
ANC6B meets at 7:00pm in Hill Center.
Among the items on the agenda:
The Commission will consider two issues related to the Hine Development. First up will be Stanton-Eastbanc’s public space application package. It appears that the only significant change to the plan is elimination of the fountain which had been planned for the plaza and the addition of five trees. Instead of a fountain, the plaza will feature nine water jets.
Second, the Commission will consider a recommendation from the Transportation Committee that the ANC support Stanton-Eastbanc’s plans for truck entrances and exits at Hine site during the demolition and excavation phases scheduled to start this July.
Liquor License Renewals
Liquor license renewals for the following restaurants were scheduled for discussion.
Capitol Hill Tandoor and Grill, Il Capo Di Capitol Hill, Las Placitas, Ambar, Tunnicliffs Tavern,
Ninnella, Matchbox, Senart’s Oyster & Chop House, Molly Malone’s, Chesapeake Room, Boxcar.
Liquor license renewals which the ANC’s ABC Committee placed on the consent calendar to expedite passage are as follows:
La Lomita Dos, La Plaza Mexican Restaurant, National Democratic Club, Folger Theatre Group, Hill Center, Zest Bistro, The Ugly Mug Dining Saloon, Banana Café and Piano Bar, Bullfeathers, Talay Thai Restaurant, La Lomita Restaurant, Beuchert’s Saloon, Pound the Hill, Ted’s Bulletin, Pacifico, 514 8th Street SE, license renewal
Navy Yard Pedestrian Crossings
The Commission will discuss and vote on a recommendation from the Transportation Committee Letter to DDOT in support of Navy Yard’s request for improved pedestrian crossings at 8th & M Streets SE. The letter will likely request a meeting of stakeholders with DDOT to alleviate the serious pedestrian crossings and traffic backups connected with some 4,000 Navy employees’ cars which drive into the Navy Yard.
In other business, Lee Blackmon, DC Office of Unified Communications (911 Call Center) & National Association of Government Employees Local R3-07, will make a ten minute presentation regarding 911 Call Center Staffing Concerns.
