The Week Ahead….

by Larry Janezich

Monday, July 7

ANC6C ABC Committee is scheduled to meet at 7:00pm in Kaiser Permanente Capitol Hill Medical Center, 700 Second Street NE.   The agenda was not available at press time.

Monday, July 7

CHRS Historical Preservation Committee meets at 6:30pm in Kirby House, 420 10th Street, SE.  The agenda unavailable at press time.

Tuesday, July 8

ANC6B meets at 7:00pm in Hill Center.

Among the items on the agenda:

Historic Preservation application for 317 7th Street SE, two-story rear addition (This is the former Sheehy House for which the developers (317 7th Street Associates) apparently anticipate finding a restaurant-tenant.  This item appears to have been moved to the consent calendar – meaning it is scheduled to be passed without objection or debate at the beginning of the meeting.)   Editor’s note:  The original posting reflects an error occasioned by a misreading of the ANC6B agenda.  Commissioner Ivan Frishberg has corrected the record as follows:

“The case has been pushed by HPRB until September and I think the most recent agenda reflects this.  It was never going to be considered for the consent agenda…Naturally there would be a high degree of outrage if this case went forward on consent after the action we took in committee, so an error like this has some consequences.  This case is under regular order at item #7 with the rest of the PNZ agenda and it even notes the HPRB decision to postpone until September.  The published agenda notes we will spend some time on this.” 

Capitol Hill Corner regrets the error. 

Historic Preservation application for 900 11th Street SE, concept/new construction: Madison Investments & PGN Architects.  (This is the new 49 unit residential building at the above address.)

Zoning variance request for 1301 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, allow renovation and expansion of existing office/retail building.  (This the Douglas Development project in which Ari Gejedenson hopes to open a specialty food shop and restaurant).

Letter to Metropolitan Police Department on proposed traffic camera for 8th & D Streets, SE.

(Consideration of &Pizza request for zoning relief and special exception to fast food ban has been deferred until the September meeting.)

Resolution on proposed elimination of Metrobus 30s Line stops on Pennsylvania Avenue, SE.  Letter to Department of General Services requesting a market study in support of Eastern Market business planning efforts.
