On Aug. 19, ANC 5B sent a letter to the D.C. Historic Preservation Review Board asking that Langston Terrace Dwellings, a public housing project at 2101 G St. NE, be made a historic site. The letter will be entered as testimony of a public hearing held Aug. 19 on the application by residents of Langston Terrace to make the housing project a historic site.

"Langston Terrance Dwellings are both historically and architectually significant. They were designed by District-born black architect Hilyard R. Robinson," the ANC's letter of support said. The project, built in 1938, "was one of the first public housing projects of the Public Works Administration, which sponsored some 51 housing projects across the United States from 1933 to 1937," the letter continued.

On Aug. 5, the ANC received a letter from John Touchstone, director of the D.C. Department of Public Works, who said a stop sign will be installed at the intersection of Mount Olivet Road and Trinidad Avenue NE. The ANC has been asking the city to install a stop sign at the intersection for about two years. Commissioners said the sign is needed there because of traffic from the main post office, 900 Brentwood Rd., which feeds into Mount Olivet Road NE. The post office moved to that location last September.

ANC 8C is scheduled to meet at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the ANC office, 3125 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. SE. To confirm the meeting, residents should contact their ANC representative. The ANC 8C office telephone has been disconnected because of the D.C. Auditor's Office's ongoing investigation of ANC 8C's financial records. D.C. Auditor Otis Troupe has made no public report on the investigation.

Former ANC 8C chairman Edward Moore, who resigned his chairmanship in June, said the office telephone was disconnected because ANC 8C funds have been frozen by the auditor's office during the investigation. Moore, who is still an ANC 8C commissioner, said he resigned as head of the ANC because of the investigation.

"The ANC didn't have any financial records and I wouldn't sign the checks because there are some discrepencies with the {financial} books," he said.

Residents who need more information about the ANC operations should call the D.C. Office of Community Services, which monitors the city's 37 ANCs, at 939-8750.



Treasurer Robert Yeldell announced at the Aug. 12 ANC 8E meeting that he has conducted an analysis of the ANC operating budget to show how much it cost to run the ANC on a monthly and quarterly basis. ANC 8E will be considering its annual budget at the Sept. 9 meeting.

"We are very pleased with this budget analysis because we can clearly show what resources are available for {community} grants and ANC committees," said Absalom Jordan, chairman of ANC 8E. "It's important for the ANC to hear the public's comments on the budget and we encourage people to attend the Sept. 9 meeting."

Also at the Aug. 12 meeting, Elizabeth Brooks Evans, Herb Jones and Larry Thurston of the Office of the People's Counsel discussed a proposal being considered by the D.C. Public Service Commission for the Potomac Electric Power Co. (PEPCO) to reduce energy costs for people who buy energy-efficient air conditioners and heating units. Jordan will testify on behalf of the ANC in support of the reduced energy rates at a public hearing on the proposal by the D.C. Public Service Commission Sept. 9. For more information on the proposal, call the ANC office at 562-7951.

The ANC also is studying the possiblity of joining with other ANCs and community groups to ask the D.C. Public Service Commission to investigate telephone bills sent recently to city residents that had phone calls charged that the customer did not make. The ANC urges anyone having a problem with his phone bill to call Herb Jones at 727-3071.

Several city residents have complained to other ANCs that they have received telephone bills recently with calls to sex-oriented phone services that the customers say they did not make. On Aug. 12, ANC 1C, which represents the Adams Morgan area, passed a resolution to ask the Chesapeake & Potomac (C & P) Telephone Co. and the D.C. Public Service Commission to investigate the complaints.
