The renewal of a liquor license for the Paragon Too, 2233 Wisconsin Ave. NW, will be discussed at a special meeting of Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B at 7:30 tonight at Luke's Methodist Church, Wisconsin Avenue at Calvert Street NW. Speakers will include neighborhood residents, business owners and representatives of the bar and of the police. Some residents have complained of crime, vandalism, noise and parking violations by Paragon Too patrons. An Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission hearing on the case is set for Oct. 1.
ANC members and residents of 40th Street NW in Glover Park apparently have defeated a proposal to build a four-unit apartment building on a yard next to an apartment building at 2346 40th St. NW. The owner of the property withdrew an application for a variance before the scheduled Board of Zoning Adjustment hearing. Residents and neighbors of the existing apartment building had organized a petition campaign against the project on grounds it would destroy the yard and aggravate parking and noise problems. The ANC and the city's Office of Planning and Development also opposed the variance.
As a result of concerns about disruptions and noise expressed by residents near the planned crosstown water main project, the ANC has set up a committee to keep in touch with the D.C. Department of Environmental Services about the project. Next spring, DES will begin laying a new water main under the Capital Transit trolley right of way. Any questions or complaints about the project may be referred to ANC commissioner Kirk Rankin at 333-6849.
