Next week, the ANC will be meeting for its July session. It’s the last meeting of the commission until September. So if you’ve got something you want done, better do it next week!
As it stands, there are only a couple interesting items:
After all the hubbub over the Glover Park changes, people began to wonder if it wouldn’t make sense to take that one block of 35th st. north of Whitehaven–which is currently one-way southward–and make it two way. That way, cars going north wouldn’t have to turn right on Whitehaven to get onto Wisconsin.
GM’s not sure what the benefit of doing this would be. You’d probably have to add a traffic light because otherwise it would be a really tough left turn to make from 35th. Then you’d have three consecutive traffic lights within 200 yards or so.
But maybe there’s some upside GM’s not seeing.
The George club on Prospect has long chafed under the voluntary agreement they inherited from the dearly departed Georgetown Billiards. Once again they are applying to the ABC board to terminate the agreement (they’re actually now called “settlement agreements”, which is probably a more accurate description). Opposition has been fairly steady, so expect more conflict.
New GU Dorm
On the agenda is an item on a new residence hall for GU. GM hasn’t heard any details yet, so he’s interested to see what they’ve come up with to meet their obligations under the campus plan. They earlier proposed converting the conference hotel, but have since dismissed that as a possibility.
Sadly, GM won’t be present at the meeting. He’ll be off enjoying the cool temperatures of Northern Europe. So you’ll have to get your coverage somewhere else next week.
