Bloomingdale Civic Assn members are invited to support the BCA's Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) package -- 1st hearing is Thursday evening, 05-01-2014

Here are the zoning hearing dates for McMillan, case 13-14:

According to the Notice of Public Hearing, the meetings will take place Thursday, May 1, 2014, 6:30 P.M.Monday, May 5, 2014, 6:30 P.M.Thursday, May 8, 2014, 6:30 P.M.; and, Tuesday, May 13, 2014, 6:30 P.M. (if needed) at Jerrily R. Kress Memorial Hearing Room, 441 4th Street, N.W., Suite 220-South, Washington, D.C. 20001.
It should be noted that the zoning calendar also lists a hearing date for May 20, 2014; however, I cannot figure out what this particular date is for.  I would suspect that this is when the zoning commission will present their ruling on the case.
According to the notice, the hearing will cover the following topics on the following days:
  • May 1, 2014 6:30 p.m.: Master Plan, Open Spaces and Parks, and Community Center (Parcels 6 and 7)
  • May 5, 2014 6:30 p.m.: Multi-Family/Retail Building (Parcel 4) and Townhouses (Parcel 5)
  • May 8, 2014 6:30 p.m.: Healthcare Facility (Parcel 1)
  • May 13, 2014 6:30 p.m: Continuation hearing, as needed

Scott: Can you please clarify whose CBA version this is: the one put forward by the MAG with the input from BCA and SCA? Or the ANC5E CBA put forward by Commissioner Barnes without any input from either of the associations (or anybody in either community that I'm aware of).

Todd: I have created a fresh post here at the blog with the Bloomingdale Civic Association McMillan Community Benefits Agreement (CBA) resolution. Go here: http://bloomingdaleneighborhood.blogspot.com/2014/04/here-is-bloomingdale-civic-assn.html

Scott has posted, at the behest of the BCA Executive Board, a request that people show support for the community benefit requests voted on and submitted by the BCA. This is neither the MAG CBA or the eventual ANC 5E CBA (which was postponed).

You are correct that the BCA resolution informed the MAG CBA, but it is its own, separate document. Even if the zoning commission were to dismiss the CBA put forth by the MAG, it would be helpful to encourage them to support the specific items put forth by Bloomingdale.
