A quick heads up on a couple of events that might be of interest: On May 19 and 21 there will be Roundtable Discussions on "Development Dollars for Community Benefits", an event sponsored by ANC 6D, the Southwest Neighborhood Assembly, and the South Washington/West of the River Family Strengthening Collaborative (see the flyer for locations and times). And on May 26, the Anacostia Community Boathouse Association is hosting a Youth River Sports Day, sponsored by the Anacostia Waterfront Corporation and the DC Sports and Entertainment Commission--see the AWC announcement for more details.
UPDATE: Just across the transom is an announcement (not yet online) of the next Anacostia Waterfront Corporation board meeting, on May 23rd at 6:00 pm at 1105 New Jersey. Near Southast items on the agenda include "South Capitol Waterfront Modification of Contract for Parsons Brinkerhoff" (which I believe has to do with the project to design Diamond Teague Park) and "Baseball District: Western Development Litigation" (ah, reliving the good old days of the Garages Wrapped With Development Goodness).

 

From Wednesday's Post: " In a preliminary vote yesterday, the [DC] council unanimously supported the creation of a quasi-independent agency to replace the Anacostia Waterfront Corp. and the [National Capital Revitalization Corp.], the two entities that have shepherded development in recent years. But the Fenty administration wants full control of the projects and plans to lobby the council to reconsider its legislation before a final vote next month." Kwame Brown's plan is to create the "Economic Development Authority", which would take control of many of the NCRC and AWC projects, but would give the administration authority over other parcels, such as Poplar Point. Neil Albert, the deputy mayor for economic development (who would see the functions of the AWC and NCRC folded into his domain under the mayor's proposal), "said the council's plan to create an Economic Development Authority would add layers of bureaucracy to an already arduous process." But Brown says "that the new agency would have the focus necessary to complete the projects." The AWC's specific projects in Near Southeast include Canal Park, Diamond Teague Park, and the Anacostia Riverwalk, as well as ostensibly working on the development plans for the Ballpark District and the entire South Capitol Waterfront.
