Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

Today's tidbits:
* The Nationals are in the middle of the One Warm Coat Drive, which is collecting "clean, reuseable" coats and jackets that will be distributed to District adults and children free of charge by the Coalition for the Homeless. Coats may be taken to the Team Store on the southwest corner of Half and N streets, SE, which will be open at 11 am everyday between now and Dec. 11 (except for Thanksgiving), with the store staying open until 3 pm from now to Nov. 25, 6 pm on the 27th and 28th, and 4 pm from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11.
* Buzzard Point--the peninsula south of Potomac Avenue where the Anacostia and Potomac meet--is 95 percent outside of my boundaries (technically there's a sliver of Southeast over there since South Capitol Street runs down to R Street), but I'll still pass this along. The American Planning Association is going to develop a Strategic Vision for Buzzard Point, and there's a community meeting tomorrow (Wednesday, Nov. 18) from 6 to 8:30 pm, followed by a walking tour on Thursday, Nov. 19, from 8 to 9:30 pm, and then an "initial findings" meeting on Saturday, Nov. 21, at 2 pm. The Thursday and Saturday meetings are at the MPD-1D station at the old Bowen Elementary School at 101 M St., SW, and the walking tour leaves from King-Greenleaf Rec Center at 201 N St., SW. More information about the project and meetings here. (Note: meeting locations revised from original post)
* This is from last week, but WBJ reports that the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments is joining a regional group looking at possible ferry service from Occoquan to points along the Potomac and Anacosita Rivers (including the Navy Yard).
* The city has announced the first move related to the reconstruction of the 11th Street Bridges--they're going to close the pedestrian bridge over DC295 in Anacostia on or about Nov. 30, because it needs to be demolished to make way for the construction of a new ramp that will link southbound 295 with the new bridges.
And, two last-minute meeting reminders:
* If you're reading this in the next few hours, you can still make tonight's Lower 8th Street Visioning session, at 7 pm at 535 8th Street, SE. @CapitolHillDC live-tweeted this morning's session, if you want to see what went on. The agenda is available on the blogspot site.
* Competing with the Buzzard Point meeting is DDOT's public meeting on the Ward 6 Performance Parking Pilot, starting at 6:30 pm Wednesday (Nov. 18) at Friendship Baptist Church, 900 Delaware Ave., SW. This is a meeting I'm actually going to be able to attend! Woo-hoo!

i was hoping to make the DDOT meeting on the performance parking plan tonight, but i'm not going to be able to. hopefully they address, at some point, the question of RPPs for the big buildings in the area (CHT, 909, onyx, velocity, etc etc) and whether there is just going to be a blanket denial of RPPs for these buildings, or whether that might change in the future. it's a pretty looming question for those of us who couldn't afford $40K for a garage spot!

One of the sticking points for the ferries is the waiver of speed/wake restrictions on the Anacostia. The proposals read like it's a "done-deal" and they'll get the waivers.

I hope they'll have sense enough to talk with other stakeholders already using the river first. I'm pretty sure it won't fly with the marinas and rowers/paddlers on the river. The James Creek Marina will probably see their boats beat up with the wake coming off the ferries, so they'll oppose it. Likewise, the big wakes aren't that healthy for rowing shells, dragonboats, and outrigger canoes.

Development along the river is great, but you have to play nice with the people already there. Waiving wake restrictions is not going to make them any friends.
