Agenda Items

ECA business — 7:00-7:30 pm

  • Votes on an ABRA :
    • whether to protest the liquor license application for Sewa’s Convenience Store LLC at 1633 North Capitol Street (beer and wine only; no liquor). The opposition would be based on a history of noncompliance with laws and regulations regarding the sale of alcohol and cigarettes at this location (our understanding is that the longtime property owner is seeking the new permit).

    • Supports reducing limit to 25 mph between 4th Street NW & Florida Avenue NE
    • Requests extension fo 25 mph zone between Florida Ave & 4th Street NE
    • Requests that DDOT enhance enforcement, including by repositioning existing camera
  • Short updates:
    • North Capitol Street
