ANC Preview: Last Call for Summer Edition

The ANC will meet for its July session next Monday. This is the last meeting before September, which probably makes it a tad longer as more project try to get through (and it definitely makes the September session interminable as two month’s worth of projects are reviewed).

The agenda has some typical projects but one jumps out at GM as potentially interesting. And it’s the West Heating Plant. This landmark property is being sold by GSA. The nearby neighbors want, at the very least, for the currently unbuilt property to remain unbuilt. GSA just wants to unload the property at a good price. And a sub-committee-worth of Congressmen want the same. These are not necessarily compatible desires. Since the auction is supposed to happen this summer, this issue will likely come to a head soon.

GM’s not sure whether the ANC will take a position on the matter. The hope among the neighbors is that either GSA or the city will take steps before the auction to ensure that the open space remain open. This could be either from GSA setting terms to the auction (somewhat unlikely) or the city zoning the property with restrictive zoning (somewhat more likely). Suffice to say a lot of developers are considering spending a lot of money to get the property in their hands.

Here’s the rest of the agenda:
