Looking Back: Biggest Georgetown Stories of 2012 (January Through March)
We begin our roundup of the biggest stories of the year.
2012 brought a mix of hyperlocal news and regionally-relevant events Georgetown Patch throughout the year.
Here, we begin rounding up the most-read stories throughout 2012.
January — Patch shed some light on a property owner with a history of neglect of historic buildings in Georgetown. The story started Thanksgiving 2011 when 1424 Wisconsin Ave. NW collapsed. After receiving several stop work orders for construction begin done without a permit, these days the owner is going through the Old Georgetown Board for review of plans to rebuild the commercial structure.
In other news, contractors on the O and P Street Project realized they needed a solution to replace deteriorated streetcar tracks.
February — Doctors treating Georgetown murder suspect Albrecht Muth told the court that their patient was claiming to be a prophet and to see the Arch Angel Gabriel. Similar statements convinced doctors to declare Muth not competent in the spring. But in December, DC Superior Court Judge Russel F. Cana determined Muth was competent to stand trial.
Additionally, Georgetowners learned they would be able to weigh in on plans for a new boat house zone on the Georgetown Waterfront.
March — Patch readers took great interest when we asked where you like to take out of town guests for a "uniquely" Georgetown experience. You voted overwhelmingly for Baked and Wired.
We'll continue our roundup all through Monday, and recap everything on Tuesday.
