#ANC5E @anc5edc voted to support resident-only parking (the red-text no parking signs and NOT the green-text parking signs) for Quincy Pl NW, 1600 block of 1st St NW & 400 block of R St NW@DDOTDC @TruxtonCircle #BloomingdaleDC pic.twitter.com/VBTGYmtT2O— Scott Roberts (@ScottRobertsDC) April 22, 2020
This request for resident-only parking will get forwarded to DDOT. Note that resident-only parking is for one side of the street and not both sides of the street. Whether this actually happens is another thing.
This is not new news: Maedwell has indicated in the past that it would be purchasing the firehouse property to be able to incorporate it with the hotel project next door. Note that renderings will be shared with the community sometime soon.#ANC5E @anc5edc meeting: Syga Thomas of Maedwell Companies, developer of the @maisonkesh project, advises there is a purchase agreement to buy the firehouse; there will be an inlay on North Cap; renderings will be shared with the community soon#BloomingdaleDC pic.twitter.com/WjjyJPdEAF— Scott Roberts (@ScottRobertsDC) April 22, 2020
at tonight's #ANC5E @anc5edc meeting: #Ward5 @CM_McDuffie's Kelley Cislo advises that they have met with @AGKarlRacine's office to get #BloomingdaleDC's #JoeMamo lot taxed at the higher vacant property rate pic.twitter.com/6cecN789h0— Scott Roberts (@ScottRobertsDC) April 22, 2020
Let's see if the Joe Mamo lot at North Capitol St NW and Florida Ave NW gets taxed at a higher tax rate -- as a motivation to advance the development project -- or to sell the property to a development team that will actually pursue the project.
recall the #ANC6E resolution requesting @DDOTDC to perform a traffic safety assessment for Fla Av from Ga Av NW to NY Av NE? there is a #ANC5E @anc5edc resolution opposing any means that will result in the reduction in the # of lanes#BloomingdaleDC @DCVisionZero pic.twitter.com/W4wktFHMtq— Scott Roberts (@ScottRobertsDC) April 22, 2020
and #ANC5E @anc5edc votes to support this resolution - 8 in support, 2 abstentions#ANC6E @alopez_pdx @DDOTDC #BloomingdaleDC #whatever— Scott Roberts (@ScottRobertsDC) April 22, 2020
This vote by ANC5E is unbelievable.Apparently we shouldn't put a bike lane on Florida Ave because of 9/11.— Nicole Dragon’s Ascent Game Of Skill McEntee (@nikkimcentee17) April 22, 2020
No really, that's what was just said.
This traffic study has not been performed and ANC5E votes to oppose one of the potential outcomes of this study.
I have been asked to add these tweets (which I am doing without comment):
I’m pretty sure ANC’s don’t get to take options off of DDOT’s table. Even so, it’s sad to see so much energy spent on Commissioner Lewis’s misguided car-centric vision. Maybe someone who wants Florida Avenue to be safer should run against her this year! https://t.co/BWME1E4nY7— Fix Dave Thomas Circle (@FixCircle) April 22, 2020
