Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2B/Dupont Circle has extended the deadline for comment on its draft goals until February 5. Community members wishing to read and comment on the goals can find them here.
"Many Commissioners and neighbors are frustrated that the ANC is not as
proactive as it could be," said ANC2B Chair Noah Smith (Commissioner for district 09) in an email. "One way to address that is to define
actionable goals for the community and then establish committees and
workgroups around those goals."
Among the issues addressed in the draft goals are parking, historic preservation, vermin control, emergency response, and education. Specific issues mentioned were the development of the land next to St. Thomas' Parish Episcopal Church (1772 Church Street NW) and the West Dupont Liquor License Moratorium.
Several of the comments on the draft goals indicate that members of the community are concerned about homelessness and wish to see the ANC address this issue.
Those wishing to comment on the goals can leave a comment on the page where the goals are published on the ANC2B web site here, or email the ANC at firstname.lastname@example.org
