BANCA Meeting Thursday Night 4/17 @ La Colombe 7:15 PM

La Colombe Cafe Manager, Greg Smith has graciously agreed to host our meeting in their spaces at 924 Rear N Street NW.   Note the Cafe closes at 7PM.  This location will suit us well as:

Thursday's meeting is intended to focus on the new development for 917 M Street and 1212 9th Street.
Brook Katzen and team from SB-Urban will present their latest plans for the proposed development.  There was a preliminary review given at the March CDC meeting.  Here are some of the drawings they presented at that time:  They will show us their latest plans prior to engaging the ANC on Zoning and Historic approvals required for the project.

Other topics we may touch on briefly could include:
*Gang of Three Construction
*926 N Street Demolition
*Convention Center Traffic Study
*Results from the ANC 2F ABRA Policy Committee meeting Wednesday night addressing the Lost and Found's request for a CT license @ 1240 9th Street.
*Also of interest may be this project at 918 N Street:

Utility Connections for the Gang of Three/Pepco

This is a heads up to all that this utility work will begin today (digging in the alley to install a conduit for Pepco) going from the back of the Gang of Three on the Blagden Alley side of their buildings behind 9th Street.  The work will proceed north and take a left heading west in the wide part of the alley past Rouge 24 and La Colombe, then they will turn north and go up the north/south alley to N Street (essentially going over the same path that La Colombe did a few months ago).

Andrea Gourdine from Douglas Development has already reached out to the immediately impacted businesses in Blagden Alley and a few of the residents.  I am sending this for broader awareness and if the work directly impacts please contact Andrea to see if they can accommodate your concerns.  

Work hours are notionally 9:30 to 3:30 PM Monday through Friday and the work will take 3-4 weeks to complete.
