The March 1 meeting of ANC 2E was both long and newsworthy, tapping into hot issues that The Georgetowner intends to cover in the coming weeks and months.
The shooting, reportedly drug-related, took place around 3:15 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 18, in a residence on the 1000 block of Thomas Jefferson St. NW.
The fenced-in construction site at 3000 M St. NW, with a tower crane that spins around in the wind, has tried the neighborhood’s patience for years.
The nighttime scene along K Street from 29th Street past 34th Street has many residents upset about the ongoing criminal activity, which includes drag racing, drug dealing and muggings.
The preliminary plans include “tactical” concrete sidewalks along the 3400-3500 blocks of Water Street, along with a two-way bikeway, a traffic roundabout and changes to on-street parking.
When completed in 2030, the project is expected to reduce the volume of combined sewer overflows into District waters by an estimated 96 percent.
Many Georgetown residents see the planned renovation of the building as the one chance in decades to provide space for community programs ranging from yoga to computer classes.
The public commentary period has been extended until Dec. 4. In addition, ANC 2E may consider a resolution at its Dec. 3 meeting.
The main problem so far is when cars (and a tourist bus or two) park in the bike lanes. Even police patrol cars can be seen sitting in a lane.
