ANC Preview: Sticka Mic Drop Edition

Next Monday is the February session for ANC2E. Near the beginning of the meeting, the commission will perform its biannual duty to honor the recently departed ANC member with a special commendation. This time it’s Jake Sticka who will be so honored. Perhaps in a nod to Jake, the ANC will be meeting again at GU, specifically the McShain Lounge in McCarthy Hall.

The ANC will also deal with more meaty topics. On the agenda is the proposed residential zoning rewrite. This project–part of a city-wide effort–will modernize the zoning code in Georgetown by recognizing that much of what technically is “non-conforming use” today (i.e. stores in the neighborhoods, English basement apartments, etc.) includes features many think are what make Georgetown Georgetown.

A group of representatives from CAG, the ANC and the OGB have been meeting for over a year hashing out a proposal for OP to consider applying to Georgetown. The group includes voices from across the issue. (Full disclosure: As a member of CAG’s board, GM has had a tangential role in this effort). Some in the group were very conservative and wanted little change, others are straight up urbanists pushing for much more progressive change. The compromises the group reached are true compromises born from serious and honest discussions. (At some point–not today–GM will go over the finer points of the proposal).

Finally, one other issue the ANC will discuss is also near and dear to GM: the proposed new locations for Capital Bikeshare stations. GM hopes the ANC is on board with the plan because it would mean him getting a station just three blocks away.

Here’s the full agenda:
