 Sliding from Before to After

From the Washington Business Journal, first word that Mayor Fenty won the battle of wills on the fate of the Anacostia Waterfront Corporation and the National Capital Revitalization Corporation, as apparently the city council voted today to fold both agencies into the mayor's office, under the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Development. An alternate plan pushed by council member Kwame Brown had called for the creation of a new single quasi-independent "Economic Development Agency" that would have assumed control of a few of the largest projects currently under the auspices of the AWC and NCRC, with the rest going to the deputy mayor; that idea now falls by the wayside. Deputy Mayor Neil Albert (whose plate just got a whole lot fuller) is now tasked with creating a plan for the integration of the two agencies into his office, to be presented to the council in August and to the city in a series of public forums this summer. I'll add more links as the additional news stories come down the pike. To start, here's the press release from the mayor.
UPDATE, 6/6: Here's the Examiner's story. And the Post story.
