Council Hearings of Interest Coming in March
Feb 2, 2007 10:10 PM
Two City Council hearings of interest to Near Southeast were announced in this week's DC Register: on March 13, the Committee on Economic Development (Nice web site, Kwame! Well played!) will have a public hearing on Bill B17-0022, "National Capital Revitalization Corporation and Anacostia Waterfront Corporation Reorganization Act of 2007"; and, two days later, on March 15, the Committee on Economic Develoment and the Committee of the Whole will hold a joint public hearing on B17-0011, "Ballpark Hard and Soft Costs Cap Act of 2007" and B17-0021, "Ballpark Parking Completion Amendment Act of 2007." These two bills are the permanent versions of the acts passed in late 2006. Read the hearing notices for more details.

Updated Monument/Half Street Renderings, Zoning Docs
Feb 2, 2007 5:05 PM
I've now posted PDFs of some of the Monument Realty submissions to the Zoning Commission for the January 11 public hearing on their Half Street/Ballpark District mixed-use project: you can grab yourself a really large, strong cup of coffee and peruse the opening statement (1 MB), the traffic study (3.7 MB, which I linked to a few days ago) or the architectural drawings (13.7 MB). I've also snagged the best of the renderings and added them to my Monument Half Street page. It's expected that the Zoning Commission will vote on this project at its February 12 public meeting, when zoning approval votes are also expected on the 250 M Street and Florida Rock projects. UPDATE: For those who aren't well-versed in the zoning process, I should emphasize that these are the submittal documents--at the public hearings, zoning commissioners ask questions and request clarifications and sometimes modifications, and so what will be voted on isn't necessarily what's seen here. But it's better than nothing!
