Curbed DC: "DC's newest historic district: Bloomingdale"

Click on the link to read the entire Curbed DC post.

I have included the first two paragraphs and the last paragraph.

Northwest’s Bloomingdale neighborhood became the city’s newest historic district by a unanimous vote of preservation officials late last month.
On July 26, the Historic Preservation Review Board (HPRB) approved, 8-0, the designation of Bloomingdale as a historic district. The change will go into effect on Sept. 9 and means that any new construction, demolition, or exterior work that requires city permits must first clear historic preservation review.

In September, the HPRB will hear its first individual cases for the Bloomingdale Historic District, per a new meeting notice. One involves the planned demolition of a brick church at 150 S St. NW and the other involves prospective construction at 1634 North Capitol St. NW.
