Letters detail the efforts of Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans and neighborhood organizations to influence the General Services Administration.
As time ticks down to the General Services Administration (GSA) auction of the West Heating Plant later this fall, Georgetown civic groups and Ward 2 Councilman Jack Evans are lobbying for zoning restrictions and possibly a set-aside of park land on the federally-owned property. The West Heating Plant is a surplus federal property at 29th and K Streets, NW adjacent to Rock Creek Park and the C&O Canal. The property is not zoned, though GSA recently assumed in its draft Environmental Asessment (EA) that a W-2 mixed-use zoning would be most likely. In that document, the agency estimated that a future developer might expect to include 181 new residential units and as much as 181,210 square feet of commercial and retail space on the site. In a…

Betsy Emes runs Trees for Georgetown as part of the Citizens Association of Georgetown.
It started with offering up her home for a fundraiser for Trees for Georgetown, years later Betsy Emes has become so involved in the well-being, care and advocacy on behalf of Georgetown's trees that she has been called (in a good way) a "tree Nazi." The better description might be tree advocate. For Emes trees are a part of her every day; she says she cannot help but notice them and catalog them as she walks her dogs or strolls along the Georgetown streets near her home. As we walked along several streets in Georgetown's West Village she pointed out the various trees that Trees for Georgetown had planted in recent years. Some, like those on the 3400 block of Dent Pl., she very proudly pointed to like a parent pleased with the success of …

Citizens Association of Georgetown President, Jennifer Altemus, was at the center of the plot!
Georgetowners came out to support the Citizens Association of Georgetown's Concerts in the Park Saturday night. The evening of mystery centered around a heist from the TD Bank's vault. The suspects for the evening were Jennifer Altemus, Nancy Taylor-Bubes, Topher Mathews, Carol Joynt, Jack and Michelle Evans, and John and Kristen Lever. In the end we learned that Jennifer Altemus was at the center of heist; she was trying to snag the Katherine Sable print for Mayor Vincent Gray. The fundraiser will support CAG's three free summer concerts in this, the 10th annual year for the favorite community event.
