Zoning Commission by Boston Properties to build a residential building at 24th and N streets NW.

They said they felt both proposals allow construction too close to Rock Creek Park. approve a new grant policy for the ANC that sets a $1,000 limit on each grant and limits grants to only nonprofit organizations. The new policy also prohibits grants to individuals. support a proposed amendment to the city's zoning regulations that would prohibit people applying for building permits from beginning construction until the permit is issued.
