With the calendar inching toward DC's annual August shutdown, there's a boatload of meetings and hearings on the agenda this week as everyone tries to get their work done before heading for the beach. Here's a not-very-detailed rundown, so follow the links if you want more detailed information:
* At about the same time, ANC 6D
is having its monthly meeting, and will be having a presentation and vote on Forest City's July 26 zoning hearing
to allow temporary surface parking lots at The Yards
. This meeting is at 7 pm at St. Augustine's Episcopal Church, 6th and M Streets, SW. (Having to make a choice, I'm opting for the zoning meeting, so it might take a little while before I find out what happened at the ANC.)
* On Tuesday night WMATA is having a public hearing
on the proposed move
of the Southeastern Bus Garage from its current location at Half and M
to a new facility at DC Village in Southwest. (It's probably geared more toward residents near the new location.) There's an open house at 5:30 pm, and the hearing itself starts at 6:30, at 2700 Martin Luther King Dr. SE.
* WMATA's Planning, Development and Real Estate Committee is meeting in executive session
on Thursday morning to address something having to do with the Southeastern Bus Garage, but they're not saying what.
* Wrapping up the week (pant pant pant) is a city council Subcommittee on Economic Development hearing on the transition plans
for folding in the Anacostia Waterfront Corporation and the National Capital Revitalization Corporation into the office of the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development; it's in the council chamber at the Wilson Building at 10 am, and may also be broadcast on DC cable channel 13 and via streaming video
And then I will spend the weekend alseep.
