o street market moves forward!

i'm sure the shaw and mount vernon square blogs will have more to say about tonight's zoning commission meeting, but the key point is this:

the o street market will be moving forward! the commission voted 5-0 to allow it to go to a public hearing. the date for that will be figured out in the future, but for now, we know that the project has been pulled off it's potential deathbed and allowed a further chance to prove its worth.

councilmember evans was there along with probably 20-25 community members and other stakeholders to show support for the project. the zoning commission recognized that, and the chairman, anthony hood, even made a comment that, when the hearings do commence, there should probably not be a column for people to sign in as opposition to the project, since he recognized that the entire community is behind this project wholeheartedly!
