March Town Hall - Summary, Presentation and Agenda

The Town Hall meeting was held at Georgetown Day School High School. In attendance from Georgetown Day School was Jeffrey Houser and Kristina Lennox. In attendance from DAVIS Construction, our General Contractor, was Chad Oursler. From GreenBench Companies, Dan Bonilla was also in attendance, as our project management team for the construction part of the project.
Major topics of conversation were related to the progress on the site and the hours of operations. The attendees were also interested in understanding the amount of time the 42nd St “slip lane” will be closed once construction begins, in order to change traffic pattern and driver behavior. There was agreement that the current outbound turn lane to Wisconsin Avenue NW from 42nd Street NW is extremely dangerous. The proposed changes to make it a right turn only from Wisconsin Avenue NW to 42nd Street NW and a right turn only leaving 42nd Street NW to Wisconsin Avenue NW will create a less dangerous intersection. These traffic changes are subject to approval by authorities having jurisdiction.
The attendees have positively confirmed that GDS’s continued commitment to open communication with the community via the monthly Town Hall meetings and routine updates posted on the School Unification section of the GDS website has been helpful to all. Being able to know ahead of time the construction activity milestones from the past month and a description of what is expected to occur in the coming month allows all community members to be tuned into the project timeline and progress.
The next scheduled Town Hall meeting will be on Wednesday, April 17th, at the Georgetown Day School High School.
