Holiday Wishes from DCCA President

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our members a safe and wonderful Thanksgiving.  I also want to thank our many volunteers who help us with our various programs and activities throughout the year, especially the Annual House Tour which raises funds that we donate to our community institutions, charities and events.  We are so lucky to live, work and play in the Dupont Circle neighborhood. And last but very importantly, I want to thank our DCCA directors and officers for serving our community and making it an even better one.

ABC Board Renews East Dupont Moratorium

The ABC Board renewed the East Dupont Moratorium on November 20 with some modifications.  They are relaxing the cap on restaurants but keeping the cap on taverns and nightclubs.  They cited the proximity to residences as the principal reason why they are unwilling to end the moratorium altogether.  This historic neighborhood's character should be preserved and not be impacted by additional licenses other than new restaurants stated the Chair of the Board. 

Look at what's coming to 14th and U

The Board of Zoning Adjustment has approved a 58 unit building to be erected at the corner of 14th and Wallach Place.  It will be built surrounding the historic structure that is currently located on the corner.  The developer plans to renovate the old building that currently houses a beauty shop and some apartments above.
