Heard a complaint from residents that a Feb. 2 party at the former roller rink at 1649 Kalorama Rd. NW was too loud and that police were called to the scene. They also complained about debris and trash around vendors' stands on Columbia Road NW.
Heard a presentation from the Good Shepherd Ministries, 1650 Fuller St. NW, about an after-school program for junior high school students. About 20 students participate in the program, which includes a basketball team, computer access and supervision of homework.

At a town hall meeting Jan. 8, ANC 1D did the following:
Reviewed its opposition to a proposal to replace the 62-year-old classical revival mansion that houses the Turkish Chancery at 2523 Massachusetts Ave. NW with a larger building. Residents said they opposed the demolition because the building lies in two historic districts, one along Massachusetts Avenue NW and one in Sheridan/Kalorama.
At a Foreign Missions Board of Zoning Adjustment hearing Jan. 16, four State Department officials argued on behalf of the Republic of Turkey, and the board ruled to allow the demolition. State Department officials said they supported the plan in order to maintain solid ties with Turkey in view of the Persian Gulf situation.
Agreed to support ANC 2B's opposition to an Alcohol Beverage Control Board liquor license application by the Royal Palace Nightclub, 1805 Connecticut Ave. NW. Residents said the nightclub was inappropriate for the neighborhood because it allows topless dancing and because of its proximity to St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, 1820 Connecticut Ave. NW.
The new ANC 1D commissioners are Breck Arrington, chairman, 332-2394, and Judy Brunton, 234-5112. They are soliciting volunteers to serve on various committees.
