PUD Resubmission and Zoning Commission Hearing

Throughout 2016 and early 2017, EYA has been meeting with residents and community stakeholders gathering input and feedback on its proposal. We have incorporated this feedback into a detailed PUD proposal that was submitted to the City in August 2016 and updated and resubmitted in February 2017. The proposal will be heard by the Zoning Commission on April 27, 2017. Please click here to view EYA’s PUD Resubmission. Please click here to view EYA’s Pre-Hearing Statement. Please note there is a drafting error on the Pre-Hearing Statement: EYA plans to provide Affordable Dwelling Units at the previous DC Inclusionary Zoning targets of 50% AMI and 80% AMI, thereby preserving deeper levels of affordability, rather than converting to the new guidelines of 80% AMI for for-sale residential units.

12th & Allison Transportation Report

EYA’s traffic planning and transportation engineer, Gorove Slade, has completed its Comprehensive Transportation Review related to the proposed 12th & Allison townhome development. You can access the report here.

This report will be submitted to the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) to aid in the agency’s review of the 12th & Allison proposal. The purpose of the report is to evaluate the impact of the proposed development to the surrounding transportation network, including reviews of vehicular, transit, pedestrian, and bicycle infrastructure impacts. The report concludes that while there are certain intersections near the site with elevated levels of delay, the proposed project will not add significantly to the current delays and does not have a detrimental impact based on DDOT-defined thresholds.

The report also recommends potential traffic calming measures that could be implemented to address residents’ concerns about existing issues with speeding and cut-through traffic. We plan to work with DDOT and the community to refine and implement the optimal approach to slowing down cars and increasing pedestrian safety.
