It's Official: ANC Formally Approves New Campus Plan
At a special June 14 meeting, Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2E unanimously agreed to Georgetown University’s 2010-2020 campus plan, as revised by neighborhood groups and university leaders. Thus ended at least two years of sharp debate between the two, beginning a new era in town-gown relations.
The most significant outcome, besides restricting students from living in the neighborhood and promising to create a more vibrant on-campus main campus, is the Georgetown Community Partnership. It will be a standing group of residents and university officials along with student representation to discuss progress and problems as they happen.
“We are all Georgetown here,” said commissioner Jeff Jones. “We have to trust each other.”
