On Wednesday, February 6, Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2F will hold its regular monthly meeting. Only this meeting will include a topic that has received a lot of local attention: liquor license moratoriums.
Commissioner John Fanning, chair of ANC 2F’s ABRA Committee, will lead a discussion regarding the proposed liquor license moratorium for 14th and U streets NW. ANC 2F covers the Logan Circle area.
Additionally, the meeting will address the Sunday parking ban in some parts of ANC 2F. A representative from DDOT will be on hand to explain the proposal to consider Sunday parking restrictions and to take questions from the commission and the community.
The ANC meeting is open to the public and will take place Wednesday, February 6, at 7 pm at the Washington Plaza Hotel in Thomas Circle.
A meeting with DC officials to discuss parking regulations is planned for Tuesday, October 2 at 7 pm at The Dupont Hotel (1500 New Hampshire Avenue NW).
The meeting is in response to a discussion held last April between Dupont Circle Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2B and DC officials on parking and methods various neighborhoods are using to ensure the most efficient use of limited street parking spaces. Tuesday’s meeting will build on the previous discussion and focus on specific parking options for the Dupont Circle neighborhood.
Since last April’s meeting, DDOT started its parking sign pilot program in the ANC2F/Logan area that lengthens restricted hours for visitor parking. The new signs allow for only residents with Zone 2 permits to park on the designated side of a street block from 7 am until midnight.
Tuesday’s meeting is open to the public.

Shaw May Move to Ward 6
We all knew changes were in store after census results showed Ward 2 is too large. In order to maintain equal representation, the Council would have to redraw the maps. Moving Shaw is one suggestion, as we reported today. If it’s all too technical for you, we forgive you. It’s Friday, after all. Instead, play this awesome game from Greater Greater Washington and redistrict as you see fit!
Less Money, More Cars, No Problem?
Nothing gets D.C. residents all hot and bothered like parking restrictions. Those that have them should be quite pleased with the current tenor of the City Council, which is largely in opposition to graduated parking fees for a household’s second and third vehicles. They may also want to lower the price of parking meters and take them back to their old, shorter hours. Greater Greater Washington, however, is less thrilled with the tone of the debate that put car prices at a premium and other transportation issues on the backburner.
