Shaw Development Projects on Agenda for ANC 2C01 Community Forum, 06/30/04

The next ANC 2C01 Community Forum will be held on Wednesday, June 30, 2004, at 7:00 PM at the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Neighborhood Library, 1701 8th Street, NW, Room 1. The focus of the meeting is “Latest Plans for Shaw: Are You For or Against Them?”

The agenda for the meeting is as follows:

Are They Going to Tear Down Seaton Elementary to Build Condos?

DC Public Schools is considering a proposal from Shiloh Baptist Church and Clark Realty to demolish Seaton Elementary School and build new residential buildings on Rhode Island Avenue and a new school on P Street, eliminating the playing field behind the school and the environmental laboratory used by the students, located on some of Shaw’s very limited green space. Should they do this? Here’s your chance to hear preliminary plans and let school officials know what you think. Special Guests: Julie Mikuta, District 1 School Board Representative, and officials from DCPS Facilities Management.

Are They Going to Tear Down Watha T. Daniel Library Instead of Renovating It?

The plans were to renovate Shaw’s neighborhood library, but instead, the library administration is considering demolishing the building and replacing it with one that’s 10,000 square feet smaller. The building is now 24,000 square feet, a size that is appropriate to support the increased population that will result from new development in the area. Hear more about the controversy and find out what you can do to help stop this from happening.

What are They Planning for the O Street Market and Giant Store?

A major new $100 million development would transform the two blocks between 7th, 9th, O and P Streets, with a new Giant store incorporating the historic O Street Market, over 400 new apartments and condos, as many as 700 underground parking spaces, and additional retail, to be completed by 2009. Come hear and see the latest plans and provide your input. Special Guests: Alveraze F. Gonsouland and Armond Spikell, principals, Roadside Development.

Please share this notice with friends and neighbors who may be interested. I look forward to seeing you at the meeting.

5D Meeting notes

Neighbors,

Art Slater, the new chairperson of the Fifth District Police Citizen’s Advisory Council, asked me to pass the message below to you.

Best,

Jim Berry

—–Original Message—–

From: Talader

Sent: Monday, June 21, 2004 11:32 AM

To: JBerry;

Subject: 5D CAC Meeting

Mr. Berry,

This message concerns our upcoming 5D CAC meeting on Thursday.

Some of the members of the Bates Area Civic Association had questions about response times for calls for service and how calls are prioritized and dispatched, so I’ve asked Commander Greene to invite Capt. Crane to speak on the subject. Residents in several citizen groups wanted to learn more about how to get the most from the Mayor’s Call Center (727-1000), hence Todd Douglas has agreed to speak at the 5D CAC. The Commander would like citizens to take a more in-depth look at police operations through a Citizens Academy. Can you share the following announcement with your e-mail group?

Fifth District Citizens Advisory Council Monthly Meeting

Residents in the Fifth District are cordially invited to attend the Fifth District Citizens Advisory Council (5D CAC) Meeting on Thursday, June 24, 2004 at the Home for the Aged, 2601 18th St, NE. at 7:00 PM

Invited speakers include:

Capt. James Crane, Director, MPDC Communications Division

Todd Douglas, Ward 5 Neighborhood Services Coordinator/Core Team

MPD Citizens Police Academy Representative

The purpose of the 5D CAC is to enable citizens to assist in and make less hazardous the task of reducing crime and promoting public safety; and to function in an advisory capacity to the Fifth District Commander. As citizens we work with the Commander to find 5th District-wide solutions to increase public safety, develop programs for youth and recognize those who provide outstanding service to citizens, among other activities.

All residents who live in the Fifth District are welcome and encouraged to attend. Membership dues are $4.

Sincerely,

Fifth District Citizens Advisory Council

Art Slater, Chair

Regina James, Vice-Chair

John Washington, Treasurer

Tom Usselman, Corresponding Secretary

Frances Penn, Recording Secretary

Bates St (Eastern Shaw, lower Eckington) Meeting Tonight

Neighbors,

I take this opportunity to remind you of tonight’s meeting of the Bates

Area

Civic Association, Inc. Specifically, the meeting will be held at

Mount

SInai Baptist Church, 3rd and Q Streets, N.W., between the hours of

7:00

p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Art Slater, the new Chairperson-elect of the Fifth

District Police Citizen’s Advisory Council is scheduled to make some

comments about his prelimary plans to move that group on matters of

public

safety. In addition, Alice Harper, the Community Relations Specialist

from

the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency who is assiged to

cover

the Fifth Dstrict, plans to make some comments about the history of her

agency’s work with the MPD and the Fifth District community. Inasmuch

as

the summer is rapidly approaching, Lionel Taylor, Ward Five Coordinator

from

the DC Department of Parks and Recreation, wants to let you know about

some

of the activities that are happening in Ward Five for residents of all

ages.

And, consistent with our intention to have each of the candidates for

an

At-Large City Council seat appear before the Association in advance of

the

November 2004 election, Candidate Kwame Brown has been invited to

attend

this month. (It should be known that Mr. Brown had multiple campaign

events

on his schedule for the date of our meeting when the invitation was

initially extended to him. So, he was invited with the understanding

that

we would invite him again next month, if it turns out that delays from

his

pre-existing commitments, essentially, prevents him from coming to our

meeting this month.)

In addition to the above, we have a Flower Power update and other

announcements of importance. So, we hope to see you tonight!

Best,

JB
