Tonight is the December meeting of the ANC. There are a variety of interesting topics on the agenda, but potentially the most interesting is a presentation by Perkins Eastman on the feasibility of renovating Jelleff Rec Center.
The aging rec center is in dire need of renovations. The facilities are extremely outdated and the building has terrible accessibility. The DC Council had budgeted $7 million at one point to provide the needed renovations, but then in 2019 the mayor proposed instead to spend $25 million to completely rebuild the center. It will be interesting, therefore, to see what sort of plans such a rebuild could entail. Log in to the zoom at 6:30 tonight to find out.
Some of those other interesting agenda items include the monthly crime update from MPD, a discussion on the DCPS schools reopening plan, and the installation of a bust on the pediment outside the Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce building on Potomac St.
