The Week Ahead…Highlights…And Some Photos from the Past Week

Acting DDOT Director Everett Lott (upper right corner in photo) showed up at ANC6D’s October meeting last week to talk about new policies to eliminate some of the red tape involved in installing traffic safety interventions – like speed bumps and flexi-posts.  The policies, he said, would be implemented over the next six weeks.  Larger projects will be expedited through reforming the review process, with the goal of getting drivers out of their cars and off the road and onto buses.  All this amounts to a “pledge for more traffic equity.”  Lott’s confirmation hearing on his appointment to be Director of DDOT is on October 26.

    hey Larry, no word from Donatellia about the retail under the existing building? His company was very slow to fill in the places under a similar unit in Columbia Heights–and the retail envionment is even worse now

    RE: the zoning request on the extension on the 1200 block of E Street: Finally the ANC gets some backbone to oppose these extremely unneighborly additions. They just ruin the atmosphere and conditions for the neighboring properties (taking away sunlight and replacing it with a blank, hulking wall). It is a very selfish and self-centered action. If that much additional space is needed, they need to find another house which can accommodate them rather than destroying the neighbors’ environments for their selfish benefit.

    I could not agree more – these extensions go beyond credible for the neighborhood.
