The Week Ahead….Public to Weigh Plans for Boys and Girls Club

by Larry Janezich

Monday, January 19

Federal Holiday:  Birthday of the Rev. Martin Luther King

(ANC6A Community Outreach Committee meeting postponed until Monday, January 26)

(ANC6A Transportation Committee meeting postponed until February 9)

Tuesday, January 20

Boys and Girls Club development proposals will be presented to the community for comment at a meeting hosted by Department of General Services.  The meeting will be 6:30pm – 8:30pm at Payne Elementary School, 1445 C Street, SE.  The city plans to select a developer to develop the Boys and Girls Club Building at 216 17th Street, SE, into residential units and community space. 

ANC 6B will consider the community responses and submit its comments at the February 10 monthly meeting.  The Payne meeting is the first of only two opportunities residents will have to affect how this property will be developed.  The only other chance will be at the February ANC6B meeting but time will be very limited.  See CHC post here:

ANC6A Economic Development and Zoning Committee meets at 7:00pm in Sherwood Recreation Center (640 10th Streets, NE)

Among items on the agenda:

1600 Block of Kramer Street, NE: DC Department of Housing and Community Development has solicited offers for the development of multiple adjoining vacant lots located on this block, including with mixed-income housing. Three organizations submitting offers to develop the property will be providing separate informational presentations regarding their proposals. They are:

– Mi Casa, Inc.

– Manna, Inc.

– Neighborhood Development Co.

(Kramer Street is one block long and runs east to west between Miner Elementary School and Rosdale Regreational Center.)

1371 to 1375 H Street: Applicant seeks a variance from the offstreet parking requirements and a special exception from the roof structure setback requirements to construct a six-story multifamily residential building with ground floor retail.

721 11th Street, NE: Applicant seeks a special exception for not meeting the lot occupancy requirements, the rear yard setback requirements, and the nonconforming structure requirements, to convert an existing two-story garage into a second-story apartment and construct a covered walkway in the R-4 District.  (The city is considering proposals to change the current regulation which considers two structures on a lot joined by a covered walkway or trellis to be a single structure which would allow this second story addition to the garage.  ANC6A and 6B have had several of these cases recently, apparently part of a rush to take advantage of a loophole before it closes.)
