DCist article: Historic Designation Request Could Delay New D.C. Halfway House

The DCist published an article providing more information regarding the efforts by ANC 7F, the commission representing the neighborhood where CORE plans to open a new men’s halfway house, to oppose the site. ANC 7F has filed an application to designate the building at that address as a historic landmark. This halts CORE’s plans until the Historic Preservation Review Board can review the application, which it is scheduled to do on November 19.

ReThink Justice DC Steering Committee member and CCE Deputy Director Emily Tatra was quote in the article, saying “It would appear that this application has nothing to do with historic preservation and everything do to with the preservation of economic development in the Minnesota Avenue and Benning Road corridor”
