I present the agenda for tonight's ANC 5D monthly public meeting. I first saw a copy of it only this morning, and thought I'd share. Tonight's meeting should be an interesting one. As you have likely heard, the recall efforts initiated against three ANC Commissioners (Buggs, Roberts, and Shropshire failed). I consider this to be very good news, as I believe the recall efforts were ill conceived and politically motivated. In the cases of Buggs and Shropshire no petition signatures were submitted. Petition signatures were turned in for Commissioner Adam Roberts, but the total number of signatures was insufficient for a recall.
Resident Alex Hastings returns for what is, I believe, his third presentation regarding an addition to his garage. [No presentation from Alex Hastings tonight. Apparently he wasn't informed that he would be on the agenda, and can't make the meeting.] I the Thorton Development presentation is regarding phase 2 of the project at Montello and Florida. I'm less sure about the ANC 5D01 project. The best information that I have is that's probably either an affordable housing project with artist space on New York Avenue, or it could be about a hotel. [Ok, the ANC 5D project is a hotel at 411 New York Avenue. The developers and Dennis Lee of D.B. Lee Development Inc. and Brook Rose Development.] ANC 5D requested an extension to submit comments on the zoning re-write, so that will be covered as well. Also, the massive unpaid phone bill for the now disconnected ANC phones held by some members of the ANC. Sorry I don't have better info.
