The Week Ahead…
It’s a pretty quiet week (except for two additional meetings announced on Monday – see update below) – ANC6A’s Alcohol Beverage Control which usually meets on this coming Tuesday, will not meet, for lack of business. There’s a heads up below from 6A’s Transportation Committee for residents of Tennessee Avenue, NE, who may be seeing some bike lanes soon. The Eisenhower Memorial across the street from the Air & Space Museum opened to the public on Friday. Here’s a shot of the general layout.
A worrisome development for some is that Maryland is going to allow restaurants to expand indoor dining to 75% of capacity starting Monday. Mayor Bowser will probably get some questions on that at her next situational update – maybe tomorrow. Otherwise, it looks pretty quiet through the end of the month.
Monday, September 21
ANC 6A Transportation & Public Space Committee Meeting holds a virtual meeting at 7:00pm.
Information on joining the meeting can be found here: https://anc6a.org/community-calendar/ – scroll down to the appropriate meeting.
Among items on the draft agenda:
Response from Andrew DeFrank as to whether raised crosswalks are available as a possible traffic calming solution.
Progress report on outstanding issues – list will be provided to Mr. DeFrank, in advance.
Consideration of additional pedestrian/traffic safety issues, as suggested by commissioners and community members (see list at end of document) – this may be taken out of order or postponed to allow time for adequate discussion of new business items.
Notice of Intent – Tennessee Avenue, NE, Advisory Bike Lanes. The general concept is for two-way vehicular traffic to share a single central lane with parking and bike lanes on either side.
Public space application at 1660 Gales Street, NE, for exception from fence requirement. Applicant is requesting a 6ft tall fence non-transparent wooden fence on the 17th Street side of the property. Permit is required because regulations are not to exceed 42” and must be at least 50% open.
Two aditional virtual meetings for this week were announced today, as follows:
Tuesday, September 22
