ANC 3D
Spring Valley, Wesley Heights, Palisades, Kent, Foxhall

At the commission’s Oct. 4 meeting:

Metropolitan Police Department Officer Tony McElwee reported a substantial drop in crime. There were no incidents in the Spring Valley area thanks to two officers in an unmarked car who “put a stop” to break-ins, he said.  The two will now go to Foxhall Village, where there were two auto thefts, including one where the key was in the glove compartment. Palisades area burglaries were down significantly.

McElwee also reported that he wrote 179 moving violation tickets in September, including 85 for speeding, 12 for not wearing seat belts and 35 for illegal turns in Ward Circle.

resident Tom Gibson complained that several dozen out-of-state vehicles are regularly parked on 44th Street NW as far south as Forest Lane to avoid parking fees elsewhere. According to Gibson, some of the drivers are construction workers who are being picked up and driven to work sites elsewhere. In other cases, out-of-state cars receive no tickets even when they’re parked for more than a month. Commissioner Chuck Elkins said that the proximity to Glover Archbold Park likely rules out the city establishing a two-hour limit on non-residents parking along 44th Street. He suggested asking the National Park Service for help and reporting back to ANC 3D.

Ian Maggard of Mayor Muriel Bowser’s office reported that the Department of Public Works is doing stings to fight illegal dumping. Commissioner Alma Gates told Maggard there was furniture dumped on 49th Street between Calvert and Dexter streets NW.

resident Justin Pistore complained about a garbage truck that leaked a filthy liquid while loading trash from residents.

commissioner Chuck Elkins reported that the Spring Valley/Wesley Heights Citizens Association and Neighbors for a Livable Community had filed a grievance with American University’s Community Liaison Committee as to how the American University Neighborhood Collaborative has been organized.

commissioners voted 6-0 to support placing a shared driveway at the border of 1522 and 1516 Foxhall Road NW. Alma Gates abstained.

commissioner Chuck Elkins described a newly redesigned ANC 3D website, which he said will create more effective communications than the expensive site now being used. Commissioners voted unanimously to spend $300 for a data storage drive and will consider the website modernization at their next meeting. ANC 3D’s annual budget calls for $1,600 for improving the website, of which $900 has already been spent.

commissioners voted unanimously to support proposed legislation that would require the District to continue having a nurse on site at every public school.

The commission will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1, in Room K-106, Kresge Building, Wesley Theological Seminary, 4500 Massachusetts Ave. NW. For details, visit anc3d.org.
