“A clearly reluctant D.C. Department of Transportation has tentatively agreed to restore Wisconsin Avenue to six traffic lanes in Glover Park,” writes Elizabeth Wiener in today’s Northwest Current. “In the spring, the agency will remove the newly painted median strip that was designed to slow traffic and protect pedestrians on the busy commercial corridor.” In her story, Wiener reports at length on the testimony at a December 4 hearing on the road’s configuration called by Ward 3 City Council member Mary Cheh.

The Guy Mason Recreation Center (3600 Calvert St.) playground will soon be renovated, the Northwest Current reports. On November 15, Mayor Vincent Gray announced that one million dollars in city funds had been allocated for upgrades to the tot lot. The effort is part of a District upgrade initiative called “Play DC”; a total of 40 playgrounds either have been or will be renovated under the program, the Current reports.

Though plans for Guy Mason’s play area have not yet been created, Dan Melman, president of the nonprofit Friends of Guy Mason booster group, told the paper that improvements might include equipment for older kids and better physical accessibility for all.

DPR will hold three community meetings to gather citizen input into the playground’s design, according to a notice posted on the Glover Park Yahoo newsgroup. The first of these is scheduled for Wednesday, December 18 at 6:30 p.m. at Guy Mason.

From the December 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

In late October, construction on a high-end condo building at 2140 Wisconsin Ave. spurred next-door neighbor Oscar Amurrio, the proprietor of Eight Brothers Development (2138 Wisconsin Ave.), to shore up his building’s foundation—and that, in turn, led to a stop work order for Amurrio.

“My walls were cracking,” says Amurrio, who showed us about a dozen six– to 12–inch cracks in the plaster around his house’s front windows. “I had to do emergency work to underpin my house.” Amurrio excavated and placed cement and rebar not only under his current structure, but along the perimeter of a future front addition, he says. City officials visited the site and ordered Amurrio to stop until proper permits were obtained. That’s fine with Amurrio, he says, now that his building is stable. Amurrio says he is now working with an architect to design an addition with a limestone-and-glass façade.

The construction at 2140 Wisconsin Ave. was not cited by the city in the matter, and its developer, Zak Elyasi, denies that his project had anything to do with Amurrio’s cracks or his actions. “Everything that I’m doing, I’m doing correctly, and it has passed inspection,” Elyasi says. “It’s textbook. My permits are all in place.” The building at 2140 Wisconsin Ave. will be a modern, glass-front structure with eight condominium units. It is expected to be completed in mid-2014.

From the December 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

JP’s Lounge (2412 Wisconsin Ave.) has lost its bid to offer tabletop and alcove dancing, at least for the time being. On October 23, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board denied the strip club’s application to use the small performance spaces after club spokesman Paul Kadlick failed to appear at a hearing on the matter. Kadlick later wrote to the board apologizing for his absence—which he attributed to unexplained tardiness compounded by a Secret Service road closure—and requesting that the club’s application be reinstated. On November 13, the ABC Board denied that request. But there is nothing stopping JP’s from submitting a new application.

Meanwhile, an effort to question the club’s recent liquor license renewal seems to be at an end. On September 18, the ABC Board dismissed a protest of the license renewal by ANC 3B and the Glover Park Citizens’ Association. Because the groups’ joint protest focused the fitness of the club’s owners for licensure rather than the appropriateness of the club to the neighborhood, the Board ruled it “outside the possible grounds” for protest as outlined in the relevant statute. (The ANC recently used the appropriateness argument to get the club’s opening time changed from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) On September 30, the two groups filed a joint request to reinstate their protest, arguing that the Board had misunderstood the statute. On October 16, the Board voted to hear oral arguments in the matter, but on October 23, its members reconsidered their decision to reconsider and voted to deny the reinstatement request without hearing oral arguments. “I feel that we don’t need to hear oral arguments,” said Board member Nick Alberti at the meeting. “If the protestants have relevant information about the licensees’ fitness for licensure, then the Board will be interested in hearing that, and we will deal with it appropriately.” The club’s license will come up for renewal again in 2015.
