ALL EYES ON ANC-1C 
AS THEY PREPARE TO VOTE ON A PROPOSAL 
TO DOWNZONE LANIER HEIGHTS 
DECEMBER 3, 2014

     Advisory Neigborhood Commissioners are your neighbors. They've volunteered their time and talents to serve our community. They want to know your opinion on the question of downzoning Lanier Heights. You can use the contact information from the ANC-1C website posted below to call or email them.

     Although this is an important and emotional issue for many neighbors, please keep your comments polite and respectful. Be brief and to the point.

     We've noticed that sometimes the Single Member District (SMD) maps copied below and the lists of addresses that go with them don't match. If you're not sure which commissioner represents you, or if you live in SMD-08 which does not have a commissioner right now, be sure to copy your message to Billy Simpson, the ANC Chair, at simpson_billy@yahoo.com (phone 202-271-4851).

Please copy all emails to Lanier.Neighbor@gmail.com

The full text of the downzoning proposal as submitted to the ANC is HERE, as is the proposal submitted by NEIGHBORS AGAINST DOWNZONING to let Lanier Heights home owners KEEP their current zoning rights. 

Our detailed analysis of the problems of downzoning 
Lanier Heights are viewable HERE in a 28-page report.

UPDATE: Chairman Simpson confirms the maps and address lists on the ANC-1C website do not reflect redrawn lines from 2013. Minor changes affect Single Member Districts SMD-05 and SMD-06.
