A public hearing has been scheduled for June 6
by the DC Council's Committee on Workforce Development and Government Operations on the proposed relocation
of the Metropolitan Police Department Headquarters to the old Post Plant at 225 Virginia Ave.
If you're interested in testifying, the directions are in the hearing announcement
; and if you have strong feelings on the proposal (which I've been getting some inkling of), you should probably make your feelings known to council member Tommy Wells
and also to Carol Schwartz
, who is the chair of this committee.
And it should also be noted that on June 14 the DC Zoning Commission will be having a public hearing
on a request to move the 225 Virginia Ave. tax square to the Capitol South receiving zone (the same zone as other properties zoned C-3-C along I Street south of the SE Freeway), which, as I understand it, would allow for a greater height and density on that spot than is currently allowed.
