The following was written by PoPville contributor David McAuley, founder of Short Articles about Long Meetings.

“This is a gorgeous project. It’s a magnificent project,” said Commissioner Andy Litsky, Chair of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 6D/Waterfront.

Commissioner Rhonda Hamilton (district 06) called it “a beautiful phase two”.

Phase one is extraordinary and we fully expect to come to a good conclusion rapidly,” said Commissioner Meredith Fascett (district 07).

Nevertheless, ANC6E, after listening to a long presentation led by Shawn Seaman, Executive Vice President of developer PN Hoffman, voted to protest the request to DC’s zoning authorities to proceed with the project because a few details remained to be negotiated. Among the matters of contention were:

— working out an on-street parking plan that kept tour buses off residential streets,

— the details of a prohibition on electronic signs (e.g., will bus stop advertisements be included?),

— minimizing the inconvenience that the project will cause to “live-aboard” community, that is, Washingtonians whose homes are boats moored in a Southwest marina.

This last group made a strong showing at the meeting, with over 50 people on their feet when the ANC asked members of the live-aboard community to stand up. The local live-aboard community claims 94 members total.

The tone of the meeting was very cordial and both ANCs and audience members seemed eager to get the project moving forward. (more…)

Southwest On-street Parking to Get Worse

[Ed. Note: Or better depending on your perspective.]

It will soon become even more difficult for visitors to park on-street near DC’s shiny new Waterfront. A resolution passed last night (October 16) by Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 6D/Waterfront urges DC authorities to extend the resident parking hours from 8:30pm daily to midnight, seven days a week, throughout the Waterfront area.
