On Monday, April 14, the Department of General Services (DGS) was finally able to hold their public meeting on the disposition of the public land in the alley behind 3212 Georgia Avenue. This meetingĀ  was originally scheduled for November 25, 2013, and then rescheduled for February 13, 2014. Both meetings were cancelled due to snow.

According to the presentation and slide deck that was distributed at the meeting, the property is being disposed because:

  • It’s inadequate for continued District Government use;
  • The building and land would require substantial capital investment for redevelopment; and,
  • The property is not viable for the District to redevelop.

DGS is in the process of pulling together the disposition materials for submission to the DC Council, which must approve the disposition. Once submitted to the Council, they have a 90 day review period.

In all likelihood, I would expect the Council to support this disposition and, ultimately, for the parcel to be sold to the developer of the planned unit development in the works for 3212-3218 Georgia Avenue.

For anyone who wants to know more about this disposition, DGS is accepting comments or feedback from residents until Monday April 21, 2014. Emails can be sent to Regina Payton.

This small alley building and its lot are behind 3214-3218 Georgia. It is currently unused.

    I have been wondering what is holding up the development. Petworth Liquor continues to thrive!
