      Hello DC Residents,

      The Georgetownization of Adams Morgan is about to be given a steroids
      shot.

      Seems proponents of the hotel project don't seem to want to get the
      feedback that if a luxury hotel is built in the middle of Adams Morgan
      for the those who can can afford $300-$400 per night hotel room rates,
      property taxes and both residential and commercial rents will be going
      up.

      This ripple effect won't just stay in Adams Morgan as Mount Pleasant,
      Columbia Heights, and East Ward One will feel the impacts as well.

      Further feedback has shown that people are concerned about the height
      and density of the proposed hotel. The zoning for the proposed hotel
      site doesn't allow for buildings taller than 50 feet -- the hotel
      developer says it's 100+ feet or nothing because he can't make profit on
      anything less. Some have said, let's turn this church into a beautiful
      library.

      So, how is this project even being considered given its breaking of
      local Zoning laws...
      a Planned Unit Development (PUD) >> http://tinyurl.com/3csamkg

      On Thursday night (TOMORROW), the Office of Planning and local ANC will
      be hosting a meeting to discuss the Planned Unit Development process,
      vis-a-vis the proposed hotel project.

      What: PZT Meeting on Understanding the Planned Unit Development Process
      When: Thursday, October 27, 7:00 PM
      Where: Festival Center, 1640 Columbia Road, NW

      2) Come meet with others before the meeting at the Festival Center,
      tomorrow.

      ============================================

      SMALL BUSINESSES ARE UPSET TOO!

      While a wealthy corporate developer wants to build a Marriott hotel and
      wants to use a DC Taxpayer subsidy to do it -- small businesses in Adams
      Morgan are struggling to get by at a time when construction and a poor
      economy is crushing them. BUT THE SMALL BIZ GET NO TAX BREAKS?!?
