Takoma D.C. Chock 2014

New insanity to wedge 200+ dwellings in the tight street network around the neck of Washington D.C.'s sole railroad-industrial northern radial transportation corridor, with parking garage area built within needed right of way enhancement.  Has the support of the moneyed organizations that are pro-development/indifferent to hostile to transportation.  To be voted upon today, March 27, 2014

Project impinges upon  existing WMATA station parking and transit potential of site, while adding traffic to the over-stressed narrow streets.

Parking garage area conflicts with the legitimate North Central Freeway/Grand Arc Mall Tunnel right of way.

Was voted unanimously by WMATA- leading support to the idea that WMATA perhaps should be abolished or folded into a comprehensive transportation related entity.
