The MAG usually meets on the 2nd Thursday of every second month at 7PM, a decision made by consensus of the MAG membership based on how little is going on concerning the McMillan project right now. Our current meeting place is the Inspired Teaching School, 200 Douglas St. NE (the old Shaed Elementary). All meetings are open to the public. Kirby’s cellphone, for details, is 202 213 2690. Meetings typically cover community concerns, committee reports, invited individuals representing topical areas, presentations by DMPED or other representatives of the project of any new proposed developments or changes to existing plans, and open discussion of issues around the MAG. According to the bylaws, annual elections will be held at the December 12th meeting (unless changed by the membership), electing the Vice Chair position. The Chair and Secretary positions are elected in alternate years, thus in 2020.
The next scheduled MAG meeting is scheduled to be on Thursday, September 12th at 7pm at the Inspired Teaching School, 200 Douglas St. NE (the old Shaed School). The April 11th meeting was cancelled by consensus due to the lack of an agenda. Following the May 16th 2019 D.C. Court of Appeals decision, a demolition permit has been issued for the site. However, that permit is being challenged with an injunction, as the court’s instructions were that certain steps must be carried out to DCRA’s satisfaction before any permit is issued or any demolition work commences.
