Disagreements on the Florida Market
Both Richard Layman and Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner (5B) Kathy Henderson testified at the October 20th hearing on the proposed legislation regarding New Town at the Florida Market. Mr. Layman has posted his testimony here (and described the meeting here), and it was mentioned in the headlining subject in DC Watch's the Mail on October 22nd (Dirty Deeds). Commissioner Henderson, who took offense to some of Mr. Layman's comments, has a response in the latest edition of the Mail (Travel and Seizure). Here is Mr. Layman's reponse to Commissioner Henderson's commentary. Though the proposed legislation (pdf) appears pretty straight forward on the surface, the deal itself is another matter (and one that I think merits a closer look).
