Last missive from Monday's ANC 6D meeting..:
* It's apparently going to be "Neighborhood Day" at Nationals Park on Saturday, April 16. The Nationals said in a press release on Monday that residents will be able to purchase discounted tickets, but you apparently have to be in the know to find the nationals.com/neighborhood ticket sales link. (ANC commissioners got their free tickets for Saturday handed out at the meeting, since they'll be introduced on the field before the game.)
* With a unanimous 7-0 vote, the commission passed a motion authored by David Garber to request that DDOT fund a "comprehensive" traffic study of the M Street corridor and its neighboring streets in both Southeast and Southwest. Much of the discussion ended up centering around the wording of the motion (as is so often the case), with much concern about whether Maine Avenue should be specifically mentioned, especially given that the developers of the new Southwest Waterfront will be undertaking their own traffic study along Maine and Water Street. Commissioner Andy Litsky wondered about the traffic study in Southeast that the Capitol Riverfront BID is looking to fund, and Michael Stevens of the BID said that they would support a "holistic" approach to combining the various studies already done or on the boards (including the one CSX has apparently completed to look at the impact of their planned construction along Virginia Avenue, plus the reports done for the 11th Street Bridges EIS and the in-progress 14th Street Bridges EIS).
The motion was then amended to say that the ANC supports directing DDOT funds "to conduct a comprehensive traffic study and plan for the M Street SE/SW corridor and its feeder and surrounding streets and that all other area studies be integrated for DDOT's review in order to produce a comprehensive study, and that ANC 6D urgently supports the subsequent design process and implementation of a 'complete streets' plan to decrease the speed and volume of automobile traffic, and increase multi-modal transportation safety and efficiency as neighborhoods in 6D continue to evolve and develop."
(If you want to know more about the concept of Complete Streets and how it might inform a redesign of M Street, you can read my report on last year's public meeting held by Tommy Wells to start an "initial dialog" on the subject.)
* The commission also voted 7-0 to support the Pacers Home Run Classic 10K race, to be run on Saturday, June 18. Original plans to start and end the race at the Yards Park ran into some issues with the city's Emergency Management folks not wanting the race to run by the DC Water/WASA plant (and there was no explanation beyond that). So the race will now start and end at Half and N, across from the ballpark, then circle the ballpark down to South Capitol and Potomac before crossing the Douglass Bridge, running along Anacostia Drive in Anacostia Park to the skating pavilion, then doubling back. It's expected there will be 2,000 runners for the 8 am race. (Next year they expect to be able to start and end at the Yards Park and use the new floating bridge to Teague Park to get to Potomac Avenue and the Douglass Bridge.)
* In liquor license matters, it was reported to the commission that Das Bullpen did end up needing to get a new liquor license separate from that of The Bullpen 1.0, and that a new voluntary agreement was written up as well. This was all apparently done very hurredly, on the Tuesday before Opening Day, in order for ABRA to approve the new license on Wednesday in time for Opening Day on Thursday (though as we know Das Bullpen didn't open that day anyway). There's a full hearing on the license scheduled for May 31. If you haven't followed the Twitter flurry, Das Bullpen opened Tuesday (April 13) for the Nats/Phillies game.
* Also on the alcohol front, apparently both Harry's Reserve and Cornercopia are inquiring as to the possibility of the sale of "singles," in their cases to be the sorts of higher-end European beers that typically come in 20 oz or larger bottles. Coralee Farlee, who chairs the 6D ABC subcommittee, asked for some guidance as to whether the ANC is wanting to continue to not consider any exceptions for single sales, as has been the practice. David Garber and other commissioners expressed their support for the higher-end type of sales, and Andy Litsky said that 6D never really had the "singles" problem that lead the H Street NE corridor to ban those sales. Chairman Ron McBee instructed Farlee to check how other ANCs are handling the issue (apparently 6B allows sales of the 20-oz. bottles?), with an eye toward reexamining 6D's stance.

"6D never really had the "singles" problem that lead the H Street NE corridor to ban those sales." Are these guys crazy? I know it's across the Berlin Wall (AKA South Capitol Street) from your area of interest, but single sales and their associated problems continue to plague the area just west of the Ballpark. Thanks a lot, commissioners.


JT says: (4/13/11 1:25 PM)
There are plenty of singles littering the streets over by Virginia Ave Park and the 7th and L Market.

However, those aren't 750 mL bottles of Three Philosophers or Fin Du Monde, so I understand where Harry's and Cornercopia are coming from.

Lift the ban!


Michael says: (4/13/11 3:37 PM)
Not permitting singles and/or permitting only certain singles is classist and more...


Southwest_EA says: (4/13/11 7:30 PM)
Show me liquor store surrounded by responsible drinkers who buy cheap singles and don't litter/drink in public/urinate in public around the store (and surrounding properties) and I'll drop my protest. Expensive/upscale/microbrew singles I understand. Agree with JD, that's not the type of bottles you see littering the streets.


Southwest_EA says: (4/13/11 7:36 PM)
In fact, JD, I'll trade you the South Capitol Liquors single sales exemption over to Harry's and Cornercopia. A two-fer!


JT says: (4/14/11 10:24 AM)
I think you're referring to me (JT) no JD.

She probably doesn't want to get dragged into this.


Bruce says: (4/14/11 4:20 PM)
Although I have not seen stats showing how singles and littering, etc are meshed, I am not a fan of selling singles. Once (upscale) singles begin selling, somehow the strict policies get relaxed and the inexpensive brands begin showing up on shelves.


JD says: (4/14/11 5:28 PM)
You are correct, I'm remaining in my ivory tower. :)


Bill says: (4/15/11 6:30 AM)
Wow... wonder why businesses are staying away from SE DC? With such scrutiny over what can and cannot be done. This is a point in which I think websites like JDLAND actually hurt us when business developers read such comments. They then will take their money and investments elsewhere. Congrats on Harry's Reserve on taking the risk on putting up shop in SE. Now this forum and the ANC are going to tell it how it can run its business. And we wonder why no other businesses flood down here. Look in the mirror folks.

If you are not a fan, then you do not have to buy it. Very righteous of individuals to push their own viewpoints and lifestyles on everyone else. I lived in the South and witnessed all their blue laws. Glad to see such conservative attitudes still are rampant. While we are at it, we should also forbid businesses from being open on Sunday too.

Guns do not kill people. People kill people.

Singles do not get people drunk. People get themselves drunk. A single isn't going to stop that.

The ANC seem extremely anti-business. No! to the icky developer willing to invest money to save an unused crud-wood-building. No! to the business wanting to sell a bottle of Chimay! Serenity now!


Mark says: (4/15/11 7:36 AM)
Bill - welcome to America, we have democracy here; it works like this: folks who live in this great land have a voice - they get to say what they think, and they get to stand in the way if they choose, or open the door, depending on what the majority believes is right. It isn't all about businesses or corporations want.

It's worked pretty well for a little over 200 years, give it a shot and see if you like it. If not, maybe you'll enjoy living in Ayn Randia (isn't that inside the libertarian mecca of Somalia?). Somalia, where they prove every day that a pure, government-free libertarian approach encourages business growth (check out the booming skyline of Mogadishu!), and that a well armed population deters crime, right?


JD says: (4/15/11 7:39 AM)
Okay, let's dial it back a bit....


Eric says: (4/15/11 10:04 AM)
It's the difference between choice for the individual and conformity in the name of the common good. You can't buy those light bulbs! They're not "green"! You can't buy that menu item, it's high in sodium! You can't drive that car, it's doesn't get 30 mpg! You can't buy an individual bottle of beer! It's bad for the community!.

The only people who should be able to decide whether someone can buy something as innocuous as an individual beer is the seller and the consumer.

If you disagree, you obviously are a crazy libertarian anarchist. Cue references to Somalia, when I could easily cue references to North Korea.


edit: Personally, I'm for the ban. I want this area to stay nice as possible and minimize the possibility for the bad things associated with single sales. Politically, I'm against it. Kind of like how I think banning smoking from indoors is not for the government to decide, but personally I'd want it to happen because I hate smoke indoors.



Southwest_EA says: (4/15/11 10:28 AM)
To clarify my statements:
1) I was merely pointing out that the commissioners from 6D continue to ignore the existing problems just across South Capitol, although outside JDLand's official boudaries of interest. Their statements are particularly ironic and hypocritical to those of us who live within the immediate neighborhood of Cap Liquors.
2) I meant JD and/or JT; I'd trade that single sales exemption over to anyone in SE that will have it if I could, as long as Cap Liquors no longer does!
