ANC 3G commissioners unanimously voted Sept. 14 to oppose plans by First American Bank to pave a driveway at its branch at 20 Chevy Chase Cir. NW. The commissioners opposed the access driveway because it would exit onto Chevy Chase Circle, where traffic volume is high. The commissioners said they will ask bank officials to place the driveway exit on Oliver Street or on property adjacent to the bank.
The commissioners also decided to send a letter to D.C. Mayor Marion Barry Jr. and to the director of the D.C. Department of Transportation requesting that the proposed driveway at the bank be prohibited from exiting onto the circle.
Also at the Sept. 14 meeting, Kent Worthington, vice president of Wynmark Development Corp., which owns the Chevy Chase Arcade at 5520-5522 Connecticut Ave. NW, asked the commission not to submit an application to the D.C. Historic Preservation Review Board to have the arcade declared an historic landmark. The commissioners voted Aug. 24 to submit an historic landmark application for the arcade.
Worthington said the arcade owners would prefer to enter into an agreement with the ANC as to how the building will be restored rather than having it declared an historic landmark by the city.
The commissioners voted to delay reconsidering the ANC's plans to apply for historic status for the arcade, but to proceed with the application process.
The commissioners also voted to support plans by the D.C. Department of Public Works to double the time traffic lights remain red and green at certain intersections. The commissioners also voted to ask the Department of Public Works to comply with ANC 3G's April request that a traffic light be installed at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue and Livingston Street NW.
In addition, the comissioners voted to reiterate their support for a citizens' proposal to place an initiative on the November ballot requiring a 5-cent deposit on soda and beer bottles and cans sold in the District.
They also unanimously voted to send a letter to D.C. City Council members recommending that the D.C. Auditor's office be strengthened so that more time can be spent investigating possible corruption and fraud in the District government. The commissioners propose that the city auditor be allowed to subpoena people and that tougher laws be written to protect city government employes who report corruption by having an independent prosecutor appointed in those cases.
The commissioners also voted to send a letter to members of the D.C. City Council in support of a proposed law that would transfer land adjacent to the northern end of Glover-Archibold Park, between Upton and Van Ness streets NW, to the National Park Service to be used as an entrance to the park.
They also voted to send a letter to the D.C. Department of Public Works asking that the city repaint the pedestrian crosswalk strips in the upper Connecticut Avenue NW business district.
