ANC 2E elected and installed the following officers at a meeting held Jan. 2: William Cochran, chairman; Roger Pauley, vice chairman; John Wagley, recording secretary; Donald Polk, corresponding secretary; Isabel Shannon, treasurer; and Charles Meng, assistant treasurer.
At the same meeting the commissioners voted to oppose a liquor license application made by Evanco, a bar and restaurant that plans to move into the old Cellar Door location at 1201 34th St. NW. Community members attending the meeting said there are already too many similar establishments in Georgetown.
The ANC voted not to oppose the liquor license application of Melben, Inc., which plans to open a restaurant in several connected store fronts in the 1000 block of 31st St. NW. The vote on that liquor license included the following conditions: that the restaurant have no live music or dancing and that it close by midnight; that the bar area be limited to no more than 15 occupants; that management employ a private trash removal firm; and that kitchen exhaust be directed away from nearby residences.
In other action at the meeting, a citizens' committee was formed to help the ANC find ways to secure zoning regulations that will limit the number of businesses along Wisconsin Avenue south of Reservoir Road and protect the surrounding residential streets from overbuilding. That committee will report back at the next meeting of ANC 2, which is scheduled for Feb. 6.
