Half at K, Looking West-Northwest (see more)

(There were a number of Near Southeast-related items on Monday night's ANC 6D agenda, so I'm going to break up the reports into a couple of posts. One or two more to come over the next day or so.)
Representatives of the Capitol Hill Day School came to 6D to ask for the commission's support on a zoning case that would allow the school to erect "modular classrooms" on the empty community center lot at 5th and K while their current location at 2nd and South Carolina undergoes renovation. As I wrote last week, the school would occupy the lot starting in June, with the intent of returning to the Dent School building in January 2012. There were a few additional details given last night:
* CHDS has secured 29 spaces in the big parking lot at 7th and L for faculty.
* They will be requesting from DDOT that six of the street parking spaces (half the block) on the east side of 5th in front of the lot be changed to No Parking from 8 am to 6 pm weekdays, to act as a drop-off zone for parents and buses. They will ask parents coming from north of the freeway to drive south on 4th, turn left on L, and then turn left on 5th to pull into one of their four drop-off spots, where kids are guided quickly out of the cars. (You can see this in operation at 2nd and South Carolina.) Their school buses would also operate in those spots during the day. But the spaces would be available for resident parking after 6 pm, before 8 am, and on weekends, with a "minimal" number of nighttime events beyond a Back to School night.
* Headmaster Jason Gray said that the school wants to be "as minimally disruptive as we can, be good community members, and leave the site better than we left it." They'll be landscaping the site (and fencing it), and will clear the lot and clean it up once they move out.
* In return for using this DC Housing Authority lot, CHDS has agreed to fund three scholarships for public housing children to attend the school, though details on how the students will be picked are still being worked out.
The commission voted 6-1 to support the zoning request, with only Commissioner Roger Moffatt voting against. The BZA will hear the case on May 17. If you want to know more about the CHDS renovation project, you can check out their wiki, and they are also keeping a blog on the construction project.
There was also a general update on the progress of the overall Capper redevelopment given by David Cortiella of DCHA. Some bullet points:
* Construction on the second phase of Capitol Quarter is actually a bit ahead of schedule; Cortiella said the first move-ins are scheduled for July/August, but I've heard from EYA that it may be more like May/June.
* DCHA is in the process of building a new lot for DPW so that it can move out of the New Jersey & K site; Cortiella expects this to happen by August, at which time site remediation and demolition can begin, working toward the building of I Street through to New Jersey Avenue (along with all manner of infrastructure work). This would take about 18 months.
* The financing for the mixed-income apartment project on Square 882 (just south of the Marine barracks) has apparently proven difficult to secure, and is still being worked on, with Cortiella saying he "expects" it by the end of the year.
* The community center's financing is dependent on whether a second bond can be floated to get the rest of the $55 million PILOT monies; the $29 million bond sold in 2010 is paying for infrastructure work around Canal Park and the DPW site, and by spring of next year it should be known whether this second bond will be happening.
* The entire project is still on track to eventually provide the 707 units of public housing that were on the site before redevelopment; about 337 have already been delivered.
(Plus, it wasn't mentioned at the meeting, but there's a lottery of up to 11 Capitol Quarter workforce housing units coming March 26.)

So what was Roger Moffatt's reason for not approving the temp school site?


JD says: (3/15/11 11:28 AM)
To be honest, I don't know--I didn't catch any quick reason he might have given, which granted might be because of my hearing issues, but he made no strong statement. It might have been because he pretty much votes against anything having to do with Capper, I think going back to his disapproval of the PUD years ago. But maybe he or David can chime in with reasons, since this is just pure speculation on my part.





David Garber says: (3/15/11 11:46 AM)
He didn't vote to approve it because there was a Capitol Quarter resident there who was expressing concerns about the site. He knew it would pass anyway so his nay vote was just a gesture toward the resident.


MJM says: (3/15/11 12:50 PM)
Thanks - headshake about concerns :)

BTW - do we get hear about the Safeway letter? :)


JD says: (3/15/11 12:52 PM)
Outside of my jurisdiction!


MJM says: (3/15/11 1:01 PM)
Boo :(


JD says: (3/15/11 1:04 PM)
I'm sure SWill will cover it at the Southwest blog.


Bruce says: (3/15/11 1:09 PM)
Concerns were just over child safety and speed limits as cars tend to fly down those streets along with the removal of some resident parking. Wasn't against it at all. Nothing out of the ordinary!


MJM says: (3/15/11 2:26 PM)
Valid concerns but for him to vote no - weird. Cars fly down L St and the stop signs are just yield signs if that - even w/o the temp school. (Which btw - I don't think I've ever seen a MPD car on my run home down L in the prime time for speeders).


Bruce says: (3/15/11 3:12 PM)
M, I am not sure why either. Car Do fly down these streets. I received a nice email from the head of CHDS and he is looking into addressing these concerns. Nice guy.
Thanks for all of your great comments on this and other topics!


Mark says: (3/16/11 10:50 AM)
Agree - L street is a real danger to the kids in our neighborhood, including mine. The commuters rush in and rush out - I've even watched cars completely ignore the stop signs and run the street at over 50 mph. It really is only a matter of time until a kid gets hurt.

I do have concerns about the drop off plan. I would recommend that the school instead tell the parents to take 4th to M street and then turn onto 5th from M.


Bruce says: (3/16/11 11:47 AM)
Drop off concerns were addressed as well. If I recall, it was recommended that folks come down M and turn up 5th for this purpose. Thanks Mark...


JD says: (3/16/11 11:51 AM)
No, they said parents will be recommended to turn on L and then up 5th.


MJM says: (3/16/11 12:18 PM)
@DG - what would it take to get MPD patrols along L St between 7th and 3rd streets (during rush hour) and also north of M before/after baseball games? Its almost that time of year where people use 1st St to get to/from games and ignore the stop signs at I, K, and L just to try and get through the 1st/M St light. Even peds in the intersection doesn't really result in cars stopping.


Bruce says: (3/16/11 2:04 PM)
Ahh yes, that's right. I couldn't remember if it was L or M. Good point about MPD although stop signs in the area are inconsistent. Some blocks have 4 way, some only 2. it can be confusing. The use of traffic control personnel (crossing Guards) was also brought up at the beginning/end of the school day.
