The Week Ahead…and Some Photos from the Past Week

The Week Ahead…

ANC Highlight:

Wednesday, September 9, ANC6A:  U.S. Attorney’s Office for the DC representative Douglas Klein – Community Prosecutor for the First District – will make a presentation.  Seems like a good time to ask how the prosecution of insurrectionists is going and whether that East Capitol Street chiropractor has been charged with anything.  Klein usually responds that he can’t comment on ongoing investigations.  Still, it might be interesting.

  • Letter in support of bills by Eleanor Holmes to remove to remove federal members of the DC Zoning Commission and to remove NCPC review of District-owned and private projects. The bill to reintroduce would remove CFA review for private projects. The last one uniquely affects ANC 6B (and 6C) in that ordinary permits for private properties close to the Capitol must go through an extra layer of review at the Commission of Fine Arts. For everyday permits that don’t require HPRB reviews, these are always approved without issue but are subject to delays from their staff as well as their meeting calendar. For larger projects, our local HPRB would retain review and jurisdiction.
