ANC Preview: No, November Rain (of agenda items)

The ANC will meet for its November session next Monday at Georgetown Visitation at 6:30 pm. The agenda (below) has a couple interesting items worth highlighting.

First, Councilmember Robert White will be in attendance. White is an at-large councilmember (and up for election next year). He doesn’t stop by Georgetown that much (he represents the whole city, so you can’t blame him too much for that) so if you want to raise an issue with him, now’s your opportunity Apparently just a rep from White’s office will be there, not CM White himself.

There will be a couple of liquor license renewals, which are mostly not that interesting. But a new supposedly high-end cocktail bar is going into the old Smith Point space. This location created a lot of problems for residents along N St., so they are on guard over a new operation. But it sounds like negotiations for an acceptable settlement agreement are well underway.

There’s a bit of sad news on the agenda though. The beauty shop that was open on 31st St. above P St. is apparently being converted to office space. It’s always a loss for an historic shop buried in the neighborhood to be converted to a non-retail use. Oh well.

Finally, there appears to be a restaurant called Miramar coming to 1033 31st St. This was a clothing shop recently. GM has no more information about the restaurant right now.

Here’s the agenda:
