Not posted on the AWC web site yet, but here's a portion of the press release: "The Board of Directors of the Anacostia Waterfront Corporation (AWC) announced the resignation of its President and CEO Adrian G. Washington today. Washington, who served in that capacity from December 2005 to now, is returning to the private sector to resume his previous activities as a local developer and entrepreneur. [...] Mr. Washington's resignation is effective immediately." Will add the link to the press release when it's available online. UPDATE: Still not on the AWC, but here's a PDF of the press release.
UPDATE, 2/14: Here are the Post and Washington Business Journal pieces on Washington's departure, both of which also mention the additonal recent departure of the head of the National Capital Revitalization Corporation, the other quasi-government organization that, along with the AWC, has recently come under fire by members of the city council (with hearings to be held in March).
UPDATE II: Hi, Wonkette visitors. The nausea-inducing mouseovers are on that map over there to the right. After you're finished playing, click on a project or two, you might learn something.
 

The Anacostia Waterfront Corporation has released a set of Draft Environmental Standards for "integrated environmental design, green building, stormwater control, and site planning and preservation" for projects that fall within the AWC boundaries; the accompanying press release says that "The Committee's recommendations would establish some of the most environmentally protective development standards in the United States, requiring use of 'sustainable development' techniques to help restore the Anacostia River and provide a cleaner, healthier environment for District residents." Comments are being solicited through March 13.
