is there a place where we can see the comments on the public record?
Nick Keenan
21:29
Also new: two new public schools in ANC 3D

The natural boundaries of Ward 3 are the parks, ravines and gullies. The arterial roads aren't natural borders, people on both sides have common interest.
Katherine Samolyk
27:31
Jerry--so how many SMDs are in your Ward4/Ward ANC?
Andrew Heimert
28:44
Will the Task Force post these various proposed maps after the meeting?
Michele Wolin
33:31
I think the people at the south end of 3G feel more connected to 3G, as they are presently; Nebraska Ave. should remain the boundary, not Chevy Chase parkway, for Ingomar, Jenifer.
Andrew Heimert
39:40
This proposed 3B seems a bit peculiar to split Wesley Heights in parts. W St. might be a better northern boundary or Whitehaven Parkway, if trying to unite similar neighborhoods
Jackie Blumenthal
43:42
Thank you, Mary Alice, for describing other options that might work better than the original maps that had previously been floated.
Diane H
44:31
Why were the two blocks of Rodman Street in the CP Historic District moved to 3F? THis would necessitate 3F having to hear all of our building permit issues (which as you know are voluminous) before a populous with little interest in the matter?
Mike Rifer
44:38
Mary Alice-- I applaud your thoughtful treatment of 3C.I'm curious, is there a strong rationale for excluding Rodman Street west of 34th from 3C? Or is that just to make the numbers work?

I support the direction that Mary Alice’s plan is headed in
Alice Gallasch Kelley
53:57
Mary Alice Levine's proposal for Ward 3's ANC3 was much improved over some of the versions that would split the Cleveland Park neighborhood. However to include the entire Cleveland Park historic district it would have to include the area Rodman St from Reno Rd to Idaho Ave.
Katherine Samolyk
54:31
but look at ow huge ANC 3D is!!!!
Andrew Heimert
56:53
To be fair, 3D is least densely populated.
Michele Wolin
57:46
Aren't the "population centers" just because of denser apartment buildings?
Katherine Samolyk
58:14
But that it exactly why is makes no sense to have some many SMDs included inANC3D. Too geographically LARGE
C Robertson
58:42
Thank goodness this meeting conflicts with the ANC3C meeting tonight. It was a terrible conflict of interest to have ANC commissioners given so much time last week. And they were so smug and condescending.
Shelly Repp
58:53
I would like to speak during the comment period
Michele Wolin
01:00:51
It's geographically large because it's a large residential area. Many people in that area are connected to the Conn. Ave. corridor. They shouldn't be shut out.
WClarkson
01:02:17
Regarding geography of ANC 3D, how much of the land is populated vs. park land, Dalecarlia Reservoir, etc?
Orissa
01:03:42
I am in the small section of AU Park you are sawtoothing into 3D. Am I correct then, that would take us out of the Janney School district. What a disaster. Separating neighbors.
Cathy Wiss
01:04:01
I'm still concerned about residents of AU Park being sent to ANC 3D, which really covers different neighborhoods. I don't live in AU Park, but in the past I had to attend one ANC to hear the police report for my police service area and to attend my own ANC for issues of my immediate neighborhood. This was difficult for me as a resident. While the corridor concept is good, it should not be the only consideration. It really goes only to development projects and upzonings, not to the local issues that affect residents. Two ANCs can respond to a development project, one as the primary ANC and the other as the adjacent affected ANC. We did this in the past, and it actually strengthened the discussion and the representation of residents' views and concerns.
DuShawn
01:07:24
Mary Alice's proposal makes the most sense out of any of the plans that have been presented to date.
Michele Wolin
01:10:02
The east side of Connecticut in CP is all apartment buildings. Having lived west of Reno on Woodley several years ago, we felt more a part of the Cleveland Park neighborhood, rather than Wisconsin.
Troy Kravitz
01:10:58
Orissa: school boundaries are unaffected. ANC districts don't change historic boundaries, police service areas, school boundaries, etc., etc., etc.
Orissa
01:11:58
Thanks for the clarification Troy
Diane H
01:14:44
You are putting a lot of expense and burden on individual property owners who are trying to get building permits. Dealing with commissioners who don't have experience reviewing plans can be a nightmare!
Diane H
01:18:54
Thank you Bonnie!
Michele Wolin
01:22:29
Thank you Bonnie!

I think the original McLean Gardens should be in the same district as Glover Archibald Park. It has more in common with that area than Wisconsin Ave. gs on Wisconsin Ave. thidless of the actual district, issues that could have an impact on city plans and development are within majjor

I appreciate Sondra's and Shelly's comments. I think one of the current problems for ANC3E is very poorly drawn SMDs with commissioners living in totally different neighborhoods from residents.
WClarkson
01:32:11
Thank you Task Force Members and neighbors for all the great work here! Is there any way to compare the amount of government-owned vs. residential/commercial land in existing ANCs?
MP
01:32:11
There should be a rule in place that regardless of the actual district, anything happening in the surrounding area within so many miles (city planning, private development, etc) should involve any SMDs/ANCs that could be impacted.
Zack
01:32:55
Could I say a few words
Troy Kravitz
01:32:58
There is. The infamous "200 foot rule"
Troy Kravitz
01:33:29
Any ANC within 200 feet is automatically a party.
