Garrison Elementary School...it is staying open! Many thanks to Chancellor Henderson who listened to community leaders, including 2 ANCs, and parents and teachers. Also thanks to Council Member Jack Evans who actively supported keeping this school open.

The next hearing of the HPRB to review this project has not been scheduled as of this date. Their report on the details of their decision following the December hearing follows: The HPRB directed the applicants to: 1) continue studying the height, massing, setbacks and reveals, along the perimeter of the building and particularly on the north elevation; 2) revise the 13th Street elevation to better address the scale of buildings across the street and on Wallach Place; 3) provide further detailing to the retail base; and 4) further differentiate the retail and residential entrances. Vote: 6-0 (Casarella recused, Ally absent).
The PUD application is scheduled to be reviewed by the Zoning Commission on March 4.

I look forward to working with the new Commissioners, including Noah Smith who is succeeding me as our representative for SMD 2B09. It was an honor and a privilege to have served as your representative for the past decade...your first Commissioner after our Single Member District was redistricted from Ward 1 to Ward 2.
I have developed some wonderful relationships with community leaders, neighbors, and businesses in our neighborhood and the DC Government and I hope to continue my efforts to improve our quality of life here in 2B09. See you in the neighborhood!
