Hospitality Charter School Site â€“ Word is outÂ that this site has been sold to Hollow Creek Invest- ment Group who will seek variances from the zon- ing regulations to build 29 condo units versus the 7 units that would be permitted w/o a variance. We determined at our May WNA meeting that we will get involved in this construction due to the parkingÂ effects it will have on our neighborhood. George Shomari Smith (Shomarighs@aol.com)Â will head the WNA committee. If you want to participate or comment, please contact him.
8th and T Lot Development â€“ Manna, Inc. wasÂ awarded this lot (the former parking lot behind the old Hospitality Charter School). They will be doing 6 condos on the site and will have parking for all 6 units. Four units will be sold to moderate income owners and 2 to market owners. They hope to break ground sometime next year. For any information,Â contact James Solomon at Manna (202.903.8314).
Movie in the Playground â€“ In conjunction withÂ the 9-N-U Business League, we will be doing a trial showing of a movie in the Playground, set for Sat., June 6, at 8:30 pm. While thereâ€™s some seating on the brick planter perimeter, etc., bring a fold-up chair if you have one. There will be soft drinks and popcorn. If this works out well, we may try to have more of these movie nights. We need a few volunteers to put this together. Let Pres. Lynn JohnsonÂ know if you can help.Â [Lynn@Johnsonandpavuk.com, tel.202.371.0962].
Block Party This Year? â€“ Last year we discussed having our block party in the Fall when it is a bit cooler (Sept.). If so, we need some volunteers to start putting this together now. Although our previ- ous coordinator, Lauren Aitkin, has moved she is happy to assist. Let Pres. Lynn know if you can takeÂ this on.
Community Paint/Improvement â€“ We need a few of you to come forward to keep our neighborhood looking great. We need members for:
- Picking up trash from sidewalks, streets &Â alleys on the west half of T St.;
- Spraying sidewalks & alleys for weeds onÂ the south side of T St.; and
- Taking on task of finding a concrete contractor to level the oval area in the Playground where water congregates, making it slippery Â for the children.
Remember, if we all donâ€™t contribute, these itemsÂ simply wonâ€™t get done.
Next Monthly Meeting â€“ You know the drill. Itâ€™ll be the 4th Tues. of the month, June 23, at 7:00 pm sharp. It will be held in the Westminster Playground if the weather is good; otherwise, at 922 Westmin- ster Street, NW (basement).
