Orange urges Zoning Commission to Reject Campus Plan
By July 26, 2011 0 1019•
This Monday, in a letter to the D.C. Zoning Commission, Orange agreed with the Office of Planning and ANC 2E the Georgetown University’s 2010-2020 campus plan would have severe impacts on the neighboring communities.
Orange also wrote that the 40% growth in the University’s enrollment during the past 10 years has severely impacted the neighborhood, and that the proposed campus plan would be contrary to zoning rules. In addition, Orange supported the position taken by ANC 2E that advised the University to house all students on campus.
According to ABC 7 news, Georgetown University students occupy 30% of the properties in Burleith. You can see that report here.
The next ANC 2E meeting is at Georgetown Visitation School next Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
