ANC 5C votes to /oppose/ zoning map amendment change for Big Bear Cafe
So you missed last night’s ANC 5C meeting?
Edgewood resident and avid community meeting notes taker Michael Henderson thankfully attended and took notes. You can read his entire set of notes from the December 2010 ANC 5C meeting here: http://www.edgewooddc.org/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderfiles/anc5c_december_2010.pdf
The zoning map amendment change request for Big Bear Café was on the agenda. It looks like it was an animated discussion.
Did you know that ANC 5C voted back in 2008 to support the zoning change (from R-1 to C-2-A)?
Last night, the commissioners voted to rescind that 2008 motion. ANC 5C07 Commissioner Barrie Daneker`s motion to support opposition to change the zoning was passed, with ANC 5C04 Commissioner John Salatti voting no.
So ANC 5C has switched its position of voting to support the zoning map amendment change to opposing it.

Lydia's prediction: "The powers that be will likely ignore the ANC appeals for ... monochromatic residential character."
