ANC Preview

The ANC will meet for its March meeting next Monday night (which will still be February, but whatever).

Some interesting things to note about the meeting:

  • Jack Evans will be there
  • An announcement about the proposed boathouses on the Potomac
  • A presentation on the BID’s proposal to reconfigure Water St.

Here’s the full agenda:
