The Langston Civic Association's request to delay a vote on the Proposed Kingman Park Historic District application was successful. A vote on the application has now been rescheduled for January 25, 2018 in order to allow more time for resident input.
The primary reason that the Langston Civic Association became involved in delaying a hearing on this matter is because members of our community have complained of not receiving appropriate notice of this potential designation or being given the opportunity for feedback by those who submitted the application.
Thanks to our requests, the Office of Planning will be delaying a hearing on this application until next year and using the time before that to host a variety of events in our area aimed at educating residents about historic districts in general as well as this specific application.

NEXT CIVIC ASSOCIATION MEETING:
Dec. 5, 2017

The Langston Civic Association voted unanimously to protest the ABRA license held by the 7 Food store at 1830 Benning Rd. NE during a special meeting held on Tues. Oct 3, 2017 at 6 PM.
The owner of the store, Kevin Pak, was invited to attend but declined to do so for personal reasons. Mr. Pak sent resident Damone Plummer to speak on behalf of the store in his place. Association members spoke with a representative of ABRA about the protest process, reviewed the store’s recent violations and discussed additional community concerns that have not been captured by ABRA oversight before coming to this decision.
Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie also attended the meeting to briefly field questions about his role offering oversight for ABRA as well as pending legislation focused on owners of nuisance properties in the District.
