Mayor Hints at Campus Plan Solution During CAG Awards Ceremony
Mayor Vincent Gray praised CAG award-winner Ron Lewis for his role in the campus plan discussions
Mayor Vincent Gray hinted at a possible solution to the ongoing Georgetown University Campus Plan negotiations during the Citizens Association of Georgetown (CAG) annual meeting Wednesday.
Gray was on-hand to recognize CAG's four award winners Wednesday and offered particular praise for Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Ron Lewis. Lewis was honored with the Belin Award for distinguished service to the Georgetown community.
"Last night we talked and [Lewis] said, 'I think we may be able to find a solution to this.' What a great victory that would be for everybody if everybody could come together and find a way to solve this issue with the campus plan," remarked Gray.
The Mayor also congratulated the university for "continuing the effort."
The ANC will offer an update on the Campus Plan at its June meeting, Monday.
