At the Feb. 18 meeting of ANC 3E, the commissioners voted unanimously to support an application to the D.C. Board of Zoning Adjustment by Paul Brothers Oldsmobile to construct an automobile storage garage at the dealership at 5220 Wisconsin Ave. NW.
Also at the meeting, residents of Friendship Heights expressed concern about proposed legislation to issue guest parking permits to people who have residential parking permits. Some residents said people might sell the guest parking permits, which would bring more traffic into a neighborhood where parking is already tight.
Also, the commissioners said they plan to ask the D.C. Department of Recreation, which is proposing to build an outdoor hockey rink at the Friendship Recreation Center, at 45th and Van Ness streets NW, to instead open the rink in the Fort Reno Park area. The commissioners said they want the rink in Fort Reno Park since it is not as close to residences as Friendship Recreation Center. Traffic and noise problems would be less likely to bother neighbors there, they said. The commissioners will vote on their official position on the matter at the March 17 meeting.
At the Feb. 22 meeting of ANC 3G, the commissioners unanimously voted to support an application to the D.C. Board of Zoning Adjustment to demolish the former Legation Annex apartment building and to construct an 88-foot-high building at the site, next to Chevy Chase House located at 5420 Connecticut Ave. NW. The new building would be used as a 28-unit addition to Chevy Chase House, a residence for senior citizens.
Two special exceptions are sought in the application: to build an annex for more than 25 people, rather than a maximum of 25 people as allowed, and to open a community-based residential faciltiy there. The law does not permit such a facility within 500 feet of an existing community-based residential facility. The BZA is scheduled to hold a public hearing on the application March 28, in room 9 of the District Building.
Also, the commissioners voted unanimously to support a special exception application to the BZA by Riggs National Bank to continue operating a parking lot at a branch bank at 3808-3816 Morrison St. NW. However, the commissioners want the special exception for the parking lot to be renewed for 3 1/2 years, rather than for five years as requested by the bank.
Also at the meeting, the commissioners heard from citizens who live near 20 Chevy Chase Circle and are opposed to signs hung on all four sides of a First American bank there. They say the signs are too large and too brightly lighted. The commissioners voted unanimously to work with them and bank representatives to resolve the matter.
Also at the meeting, architect Thomas Shiner presented proposals to improve traffic congestion on upper Connecticut Avenue NW. Shiner asked for ANC support in obtaining federal and local grants to study ways to improve transportation, traffic, buildings and public lands along the upper Connecticut Avenue corridor.
