one week from today: Howard University Campus Plan amendment before the Zoning Commission -- includes the removal of Slowe and Carver Hall, which are slated to be converted into market-rate apartments

Regarding the future of Howard University's Slowe and Carver Halls:

The university has announced that it issued RFPs to the development community to have the two dorms converted into market-rate rental apartments.
 
This change requires an update to the Howard University Campus Plan, which must go before the Zoning Commission.

A Zoning Commission hearing has been set for Thursday, 05-18-2017.

Some neighborhood residents have squawked about the absence of onsite or nearby parking.
