The agenda for the September 11 City Council meeting has 2 items of local interest:
ORD. 2017-154 To authorize the special use of the properties known as 2411 M Street and 2416 Jefferson Avenue for the purpose of allowing a building to exceed the applicable height restrictions, upon certain terms and conditions.
ORD. 2017-152 To rezone a portion of the property known as 1900 Venable Street from the R-53 Multifamily Residential District to the B-5 Central Business District.
The second would allow more dense, mixed-use development along the currently empty stretch of Venable Street between 18th and Mosby (see below).
