Since January, 2003
 Sliding from Before to After

* Outside the Boundaries I: On June 30 at 6:30 pm, the Zoning Commission is having a hearing on the creation of a new zoning overlay district for Hill East. Quoting: "The proposed HE District is part of the implementation of the Reservation 13 Hill East Waterfront Master Plan, which received final approval from the Council of the District of Columbia on October 15, 2002. The vision for Reservation 13 redevelopment is to be a mixed-use, mixed-income, vibrant city neighborhood with residences, retail, office, health care, and institutional uses. The redevelopment will extend the Hill East neighborhood street grid, and extend Massachusetts Avenue to end in a ceremonial circle at the waterfront."
* Outside the Boundaries II: The July Southwester (PDF, 7 MB) reports that the Marina Towers rehab is now going to result in apartments rather than condos. There's also blurbs on stadium parking and traffic issues as they impact Southwest, and other items of interest to folks on the west side of South Capitol.
* For those of you willing to hunt for the hard copies, there's also a coupon in the Southwester for $3 off any $10 or higher ticket at the ballpark on "Neighborhood Nights" (i.e., every Friday night home game). Then you can watch the fireworks from inside the ballpark for a change.
* Want to join the fun and run for a seat on ANC 6D? Petitions to get on the ballot can be picked up starting Aug. 6 at the DC Board of Elections.
