ANC Report: Thefts from Autos, Liquor Licenses, Prospect Place Designs


At the Nov. 3 Georgetown-Burleith Advisory Neighborhood Commission meeting, Sgt. Phillips of the Metropolitan Police displayed his body camera and said the Second District had 18 of them for officers. He said the most frequent crime was thefts from autos – including air bags, which can cost between $4,000 and $5,000. Lock the car doors and the garage, he said. Also, those walking down the street should not have both earbuds in. As for Halloween night, it “went very well,” he said. There were more bicycle patrols coming, he said, “and be aware of your surrounding.”

Leaf collection has begun. In Georgetown, the schedule is: out by Sunday, Nov. 2, for collection from Nov. 3 to 15; out by Sunday, Nov. 30, for collection from Dec. 1 to 13.

As for new restaurants seeking settlement agreements per their liquor license, the ANC said yes to the businesses at 1419 Wisconsin Ave., NW, 1515 Wisconsin Ave., NW, and 1528 Wisconsin Ave., NW. It offered no decision on J. Paul’s live music request, calling it unclear.

A refined design for 3220 Prospect St., NW, the new retail and parking complex to go in the current Doggett’s lot, was shown at the meeting. Planners see construction lasting 14 to 15 months. The commissioners liked the staggered design, avoiding a flat storefront facade and the “scale, glazing and materials” being considered. Parking will be for at least 100 cars.
