The Dupont Circle Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner meets at its regular monthly time and location on Wednesday, March 11 at 7pm at the Brookings Institution (1775 Massachusetts Ave NW). The agenda is available for download HERE. Some interesting items of note:
- Request for support of two wall murals on U Street - one near Stetsons (1610 U) and one near CakeLove (1506 U)
- A public space application for a sidewalk cafe at The Wydown (1824 U St). Chad and Alex at the Wydown are looking to add some tables and chairs outside their space to activate the area more. The plans would include at least 8 feet of pedestrian right-of-way on the sidewalk.
- A zoning variance application by the owner of 1534 Swann St to add lot occupancy and construct a rear deck. This is a pretty unique space because the current "back yard" is a four foot hole in the ground. The proposed deck would greatly improve the space and was supported by the ANC's development committee last week.
- A rehearing of the St. Thomas Church development project at 1772 Church St. The developers intend to construct a church and residential apartment building on the land. This is the third time the project will have been to the ANC for historic preservation review. The ANC supported the project with conditions in July and September. You can view the new plans for the project HERE.
