I just returned from a long and well deserved vacation and was informed of the BZA Application for the Proposed Fort Lincoln Multi-Family Development. Over the next couple of days, I will provide a quick summary of the Documents for those who are not well versed in plan reading and provide a more simplified explanation of what this means for the overall community aesthetic. I encourage all residents to participate in the upcoming hearing on 7/22/14. I will post more details as the date becomes more imminent.
The District Gateway is an idea that I conceived which encompasses taking advantage of the current Dakota Crossing Development and extending it across South Dakota Avenue creating a Gateway Neighborhood. I submitted the idea to DC’s Office of Planning and to the Ward 5 City Council as an unsolicited proposal which at a minimum could be converted into a Small Area Plan for future Development. This idea is in its infancy and I will post more updates on the plan as I meet with different agencies.
