Earlier this week, I encouraged folks to get educated and read the proposal. Now I’d like to start the conversation on how exactly we think the moratorium may impact our neighborhood over the next several years and the next generation. As we’ve seen with other moratoria in the city, once implemented they often stay in place for a decade or more.
Joan Sterling, the President of the Shaw Dupont Citizens Alliance who proposed the moratorium, was kind enough to send me a map of the potential moratorium zone for ANC2B:
Just as neighborhood issues do not start and stop at ANC or ward boundaries, the impact of the moratorium, both positive and negative, could be far reaching. I maintain that this discussion is important to have in a serious, focused, and public manner because it has the significant potential to shape the character of our community for the next decade or more.
I am certainly keeping an open mind and I hope to hear from as many of you as possible about how you think the moratorium will impact our neighborhood. Please reply here, send me an email or give me a call anytime. Thanks!
