ANC Preview: Last Call

Tomorrow night the ANC will meet for its December session. The meeting begins at 6:30 and can be accessed via Zoom. This will be the last ANC meeting of the year. And with it marks the end of several commissioners’ times on the ANC. This includes Lisa Palmer, Jenny Mitchell, and Rick Murphy.

As is the custom of the Commission, it will consider a motion to issue a commendation to the departing Commissioners. It is a small token, and can’t really reflect the amount of work these individuals have performed over their terms. As I take office next year, I’m sure there will be plenty of times I wish they were still around! (Of course I will still not hesitate to bug them with emails in their “private” life…)

The meeting will cover additional topics as well, including:

  • Updates on Jelleff, streateries, and MacArthur High School
  • Some information on a new restaurant called L’Avante Garde finally taking over the old Guards space.

This will also, of course, be the last meeting for a while where I won’t be a Commissioner myself. I will endeavor to keep readers informed of the doings of the ANC despite the fact that I will obviously be coming at it from an entirely new perspective! This will inevitably nonetheless change the tone of my coverage a bit, starting with the fact I’m dropping the third person “GM” style (at least while discussing ANC matters.) I’m always happy for feedback, so please let me know how I’m doing as I figure this stuff out.

    Is “MacArthur High School” the final name choice for the former Georgetown Day School complex? I hope not. How about something more appropriate to the neighborhood, such as “Palisades High School” ?

    No that’s still just the temporary name. I doubt they’ll give it a neighborhood name. Whenever the city has had an opportunity to name (or, more often, rename) things recently, they’ve settled on naming it after a person.
