Thanks to a reader for passing on the presentation and notes about the Old Hebrew Home redevelopment proposals:

“Our ideal solution:
We propose the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED) be charged with redeveloping the properties as a 20/80 percent mix (20 percent affordable senior and family units and 80 percent market-rate equity/ownership units), with parking on premise.

DCHA put out a “request for proposals” (RFP) that states their intention for 75-80 units at or under 60% of AMI. Not sure how long these solicitations are normally open for, however this one was only open from July 2-9. Seems a bit disingenuous to have a solicitation out with a specific proposal in mind when all along DGS has said nothing is decided yet, and they welcome community input.

“Please see the attached flyer regarding a new community group which has formed to influence the outcomes of this development. Core principals of this community group:

Another reader sends a response from DGS:

“Thanks for your inquiry into the surplus and disposition of 1125 Spring Rd, NW. The D.C. Council’s Committee on Economic Development and the Committee on Government Operations will likely schedule a joint roundtable to discuss the proposal in more depth. This may not be until the Fall, as the Council will begin a two month summer recess starting July 15, 2014. Community members are encouraged to sign up to testify or may also submit written testimony to the Committees on the matter if a roundtable is scheduled. Notice of roundtables can be found atwww.dcregs.dc.gov, or on the Council’s website,www.dccouncil.us.

We will share your comments and concerns with the appropriate parties. I hope this is helpful and thanks for contacting the Department of General Services.”
