MPCA sponsored a community meeting focusing on traffic as affected by the St Joseph’s PUD. The meeting was held on Tuesday, January 24th at the Lamond-Riggs Neighborhood Library.
We had presentations from Mr. Rodney Foxworth of DDOT Community Outreach on their review process for development proposals such as the EYA Planned Unit Development (PUD) for the St Joseph’s Seminary property.
Mr. Foxworth described a variety of potential traffic calming measures. These measures such as, speed humps, raised crosswalks, bulb-outs etc are listed and defined in DDOT’s Traffic Calming Assessment Application. This document can be found at:
DDOT’s role is to review the traffic implications of development proposal and report to the DC Zoning Commission. Since they are responsible for project review, to avoid conflict of interest, they must recuse themselves from participation in project design.
In the second half of the meeting Evan Goldman of EYA and their traffic engineer consultant, Dan van Pelt of Gorove Slade reviewed their traffic report and engaged in discussion and Q & A.
