New ANC meeting blog, Short Articles About Long Meetings

Here's a new source of information about our area. Advisory Neighborhood Commission meetings are often long and boring but have a lot of useful things in them, like new business permits, liquor licenses, and plans for residential buildings.

A new blog, Short Articles About Long Meetings, has launched to cover some ANCs in our area and some further afield: ANCs 1B, 2B and 2F. ANC 1B is southern Columbia Heights (up to Girard/Harvard/Irving depending on where you are, click the link for a map) and the other two are Dupont Circle and Logan Circle (map here.)

It's a good blog and has a lot of info, but unfortunately doesn't cover ANC 1A, which is northern Columbia Heights. We'll just have to rely on information on that from ANC 1A chair Kent Boese, who also runs the Park View DC blog (and occasionally on me, I go to the meetings when I can.)

I'd recommend you go to the meetings themselves too -- they can be entertaining, and I feel like many people who go are NIMBYs, so maybe a non-NIMBY contingent wouldn't be a bad thing, just to even out the topics of conversation.

The blog also has a Twitter account, @shortalongm.
