We haven't heard anything about the car explosion that took place in the alley behind 3-4th Street & U on Sunday night at 4am (technically Monday morning). The police evacuated half the block and the fire department put out the fire.  Any news on that?

Bloomingdale Block Party Thanks
The grill is out, the balloons and tents are down. But I suspect the friendships created yesterday are just beginning.

After months of meetings and planning with my "crew", our hearts soared as we watched neighbors, old and new, make their way to the party. Food, ice, water and smiles were happily contributed.

A SPECIAL thank you to those ASF exchange students who literally appeared out of no where, and with their organizer, worked lock-step with us to set up, serving food and manning the popular shaved ice table. Bless you all. I don't know if we could have done it without you!!! Our hope is that you were able to walk away with a sense of the love in this American neighborhood.

Residence of the 100 Block of U Street: Thank you all for allowing us to take over your Block. Hopefully you enjoyed spending the afternoon with us.

Finally, the crew: Simone, Dawn, Lena Beth, Chris , Matthew, Dwayne and Craig. What can I say? I heart you all and we have much to be proud of. Also thank so their spouses and children who pitched in!!

Let's keep that neighborhood spirit, kindness and openness alive as we move through our daily lives. Take the time to speak to your fellow pedestrians. Check on the elderly and let them know they're still important to the community. We are lucky to have such a variety of neighbors, of whom we can all learn something from I have no doubt.

I'll see you around our Bloomingdale...

Warmly Randy

Subject: [HistoricWashington] Raze Applications Filed at DCRA: July 28 - August 17, 2017

Greetings: This report is also posted on our website at http://tinyurl.com/h9nn5nf . See Raze Permit Report – August 18, 2017.

The following raze applications were filed at the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) between July 28 – August 17, 2017:

Historic Preservation Clearance of Raze Permit Applications
All raze permit applications in the District of Columbia are submitted to the Historic Preservation Office (HPO) for clearance. The Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) gives applicants a blank clearance letter to submit to HPO for this purpose.

Why does HPO review all raze permit applications?
HPO clearance of raze applications safeguards against demolition of historic properties by accident or without proper public notice. HPO also ensures that raze applications subject to review under the DC historic preservation law are processed appropriately.

Why is public notice of raze applications important?
District law requires public notice of raze permit applications for both historic and non-historic property. This is because building demolition is often a matter of interest to affected residents and communities. In addition, the DC historic preservation law allows community groups to seek temporary and permanent protection for any property that may meet the criteria for historic landmark designation.

What is the public notice requirement?
Two types of public notice are required for raze applications before a permit is issued:
•             The DC Building Code requires the permit applicant to post and maintain a notice of the application on the property for 30 days (12A DCMR § 105.7.1).
•             The Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) Act requires DCRA to give ANCs a notice of 30 working days, which is usually about 45 days (D.C. Official Code § 1-309.10(c)). DCRA sends this notice by email.
The public notice of raze permit applications establishes a review period during which communities may seek information and consider historic preservation concerns about a property proposed for demolition.

How can I determine when the public review period ends?
HPO posts copies of pending raze permit applications on the Office of Planning website . This posting includes a copy of the DCRA notice to ANCs. The public review period expires 30 working days after the date of the DCRA notice.

How long does the HPO review take?
HPO reviews raze applications promptly and in accordance with public notice requirements. The procedures and timing are different for historic and non-historic property.

For non-historic property, HPO typically holds applications for the length of the required ANC notice period. HPO may also request photographs to confirm posting of the notice placard on the property. If an application clearly raises no historic preservation concerns, HPO may use its discretion to sign off on the application before the notice period expires.

For historic property, HPO reviews the application according to the procedures required in the DC historic preservation law. The law discourages demolition of historic landmarks and properties contributing to the character of historic districts. Typically, an application to raze a historic property must be referred to the Historic Preservation Review Board for a recommendation, and to the Mayor’s Agent for a public hearing.

What if applications to raze and designate a property as historic are on file at the same time?
The DC historic preservation law allows ANCs and community groups with a demonstrated interest in historic preservation to file applications for historic designation at any time. Once an application to designate a historic landmark is filed with HPO, the property is protected by law for 90 days to allow HPRB time to determine whether the property meets historic landmark designation criteria. This protection does not apply to properties covered by historic district applications.

During this 90-day temporary protection period, the District may not issue the raze permit for the property. If HPRB determines after a public hearing that the property meets the designation criteria, it becomes a historic landmark and receives permanent protection under the preservation law. If HPRB determines that the property does not meet the criteria, HPO completes the preservation review by clearing the raze application.

How does HPO clear raze applications?
HPO clears the raze application by signing the DCRA clearance letter attached to the application. The clearance means either the property is not subject to the preservation law, or the demolition has been authorized under the preservation law.

HPO notifies the raze permit applicant once the HPO clearance letter is signed. Cleared applications are available for pick-up at the front reception desk in the Office of Planning during regular business hours (Monday to Friday, 8:30 am – 5:30 pm).

tonight's #BloomieNights at Crispus Attucks Park cancelled

See this hot-off-the-presses message regarding tonight's #BloomieNights.

Mother Nature strikes again! CADC is sad to announce we will postpone our screening of "Midnight in Paris" scheduled for tonight. There's too much uncertainty in the weather forecast and we don't want to put anyone in danger.
We will keep our screening of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" scheduled for next Friday, August 25th and shift "Midnight in Paris" to Friday, Sept. 1st.
Thanks for your patience with all these changes, folks. We wish we could control the weather!
