Monday, August 26
Community Meeting on Proposed Helipad(s) – The DC City Administrator is considering putting up to two helipads to a site at 11th and Water Street, SE. ANC6B Commissioners Oldenburg, Holman, and Waud have organized a community meeting at 6:30pm at Southeast Library, lower level, to hear community feedback about the proposal. Commissioners have concerns about noise pollution, impeded access to the Anacostia River Trail, and ecological dangers presented by a helicopter refueling station. A map of the location of the proposed site is below, courtesy of ANC6B Commissioner Kelly Waud.

Who is that helipad serving? The Park Service has one just across the river as does the military. What is it for? We really don’t need the extra noise, pollution and inconvenience. It seems ill-advised to have it in such a populated area.
the report says the DC City Administrator is considering the two helipads. What is the source of this information — something I can read? Thanks.
Info came from 6B Commissioners Waud and Oldenburg. Nothing in text that I’ve seen as of yet.
