ANC4B unanimously votes to oppose Square 2986 Large Tract Review unless Commission recommendations are met; Walter Reed LRA meeting Thursday

After much deliberation at last night's meeting, ANC4B finally voted to not support the Large Tract Review for Square 2986 (aka "the Curtis Chevrolet Site" or "the site of the potential Walmart") unless a long series of recommendations are adopted. The recommendations are in the areas of transportation demand management, traffic circulation, building design, safety, neighborhood impact, and community benefits. I only have access to the draft resolution at this time; I'll link to the final resolution once I get a hold of it.

ANC4A has also unanimously opposed Walmart's LTR.


On Thursday night, the Walter Reed Local Redevelopment Authority (LRA) will meet for the first time since the announcement was made that the General Services Administration no longer wanted its 30+ acres of land on the site, and that all of the Georgia Avenue frontage will go to the District. This decision will significantly alter the development plans devised by the LRA and the community through a series of meetings last spring.

WRAMC LRA Committee Meeting
When: Thursday, June 30, 2011, 7:00 PM
Where: Ft. Stevens Senior Recreation Center
1327 Van Buren Street, NW
