Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 1C's Single-Member District 2 met June 28 with ANC 1D to review plans to widen the Taft bridge, install pedestrian guard rails and widen the sidewalk. The purpose of the meeting was to update residents on the project because the community has until the end of the year to comment on it.


Contrary to a report in last week's ANC column, ANC 2E recently voted to support a request by the Georgetown Inn, at 1310 Wisconsin Ave. NW, to change the design of a planned addition to the hotel.


ANC 3B was scheduled to meet yesterday to hear a presentation by Robert Bell, an architect who owns Archbold Cabin, a D.C. historic landmark at Reservoir Road and Archbold-Glover Park. Bell is proposing to refurbish the log cabin, which is about 140 years old, and to build three houses on the site. Bell says the houses would have historic-style facades, and many of the large trees on the site would be saved. The cabin is one of the oldest structures in the city.

The ANC also was scheduled yesterday to review its six-month financial report and discuss renewing the lease of its fourth-floor office at 2262 Hall Place NW through January 1991.


ANC 5B will hold a neighborhood meeting at 7:30 p.m. today at Ruth K. Webb Elementary School, 1375 Mount Olivet Rd. NE, to discuss any community concerns residents may have.

The ANC will not meet in August.


ANC 7D met last night with the Fort Dupont Civic Association to discuss a proposal to demolish the Senator Theater, 3950 Minnesota Ave. NE, to make way for a new shopping center.

At a special meeting July 10, ANC 7F heard a presentation by Gentry Davis, a new parks superintendent with the National Parks Service, about littering and trash dumping in Fort Chaplin and Anacostia parks. Davis said he employs 75 people full time at a cost of more than $60,000 a month to do nothing else but pick up trash in his East Coast region. He said he would instead prefer to use these employees for groundkeeping and maintenance work on the ball fields and play equipment. He asked that commissioners help discourage people from littering and to inform the park service of littering so it can issue citations to people dumping trash in the parks.
