- the Imagine School at the foot of 14th Street and Ridge Place SE has been approved by the charter board, but the design is still unknown, pending decisions about the historic smoke stack. (Please Save!)courtesy of developer Brenda Tobe
- St. Elizabeth's West Campus is destined to become the home of the consolidated Dept. of Homeland Security and the Coast Guard.
- all fire hydrants have been checked, and the malfunctioning ones have been tagged for fixing/replacement.
- Plans for Anacostia Estates, the three-townhouse development on Shannon Place SE are still in development. The developer was at the meeting requesting that the ANC support an exception to a minor sideyard requirement by Pepco.
Most members spoke positively about the project, but they could not publically support until they received more official documentation of proposed changes. The townhomes are designed by local architectural firm Devrouax & Purnell. The design looks good, at least on paper, but it will depend completely on the quality of materials they use (brick, stone, roofing, windows, etc) for whether it contributes in a positive way.
