ANC 5C03 Elections (Petition for Nomination)

 

ANC 5C Map
After a lot of deliberation, I have decided to complete the Nomination Application for ANC Commissioner for Fort Lincoln! We need swift resolution to a plethora of issues as well as planning initiatives with several city departments. It takes a certain level of competence to work through the complex issues, passion for Fort Lincoln to bring closure to long standing problems and the willingness to listen and work with our residents whether you are a Senior, a long time resident or new to the community. I am ready to take this challenge head-on and start to bring the significant yet gradual change to residents of Fort Lincoln. We deserve the same level of Respect, Attentiveness, and Amenities as any other neighborhood in the city and I will demand it from our City Officials. I have what it takes to facilitate, organize, and execute these issues and I need your help to get it done. I will be going door to door in the next few days, respectfully requesting your signature to run for the next ANC Commissioner for Fort Lincoln ANC 5C03.

Together we can stop the cycle of prolonged excuses and make Fort Lincoln the example of what a great community should be!

Yours Truly,
Robert Looper III “RL3”

Renderings – Proposed Fort Lincoln Mutli-Family Development

The Developer has summited its BZA Application for the new Residential Development adjacent to the Villages at Dakota Crossing. Below are some of the renderings submitted. The townhome component of the proposal seems to be well thought out, however, the apartment component lacks the architectural consistency and quality of the surrounding residences. My assumption is that this is a very rough draft for the apartment component of the development.  All things considered, I think it’s great that the development is moving forward; with a few adjustments, I think it will be an awesome addition to the neighborhood.
