Advisory Neighborhood Commission Preview Jan. 31
The ANC2E meeting Jan. 31 will address issues ranging from a new left turn signal to the design for the Georgetown Post Office.
Georgetown's Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC2E) will meet tonight, Jan. 31 to address normal commission business; the Monday meeting comes less than two weeks after the special meeting on the GU Campus Plan. Monday's meeting will revolve around a few minor transportation issues, several Voluntary agreements with dining and bar establishments and another review of the proposed changes for the Georgetown Post Office building.
Though the ANC had originally anticipated drafting a resolution at the Jan. 31 meeting, the GU plan will have to wait until February or March.
As the District Department Of Transportation wraps up its work on the Thomas Jefferson Street bridge over the C&O Canal, the agency seeks ANC approval to make the street open to two-way traffic.
Another transportation-related issue involves the Safeway on Wisconsin Ave. Currently traffic leaving the south garage has a standard traffic light. The ANC will consider a proposed left-turn arrow for traffic exiting to Wisconsin Avenue from the south driveway at Safeway.
Alcohol and Voluntary Agreements
The ANC will consider three liquor licenses, though already in place, the commission may work with the establishments to negotiate a voluntary agreement to limit hours of operation among other issues.
- Third Edition, ABRA 000604, 1218 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Possible Voluntary Agreement. Previously the ANC voted to protest Third Edition's liquor license renewal due to its failure to comply with a previous agreement.
- Smith Point, ABRA 060131, 1338 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, Possible Voluntary Agreement
- Prospect Dining LLC t/a George, ABRA 078058, 3251 Prospect Street, NW, Possible Voluntary Agreement
The ANC reviewed initial plans for the Georgetown Post Office at a previous meeting. Since that time Anthony Lanier and his architects hav gone before the Old Georgetown Board (OGB) for design refinements and review. The developer will return to the ANC for further review and comment prior to the upcoming meeting of the OGB.
The ANC2E meeting will be held Monday, Jan. 31 at 6:30 p.m. at Visitation School.
