Washington, DC – DC Ward 3 residents sue over planned homeless shelter


A 50-bed shelter that was approved by the D.C. Council is planned to be built in the parking lot of the 2nd District Station on Idaho Avenue. However, NBC Washington reports the Council didn’t consult the Advisory Neighborhood Commission about the location. David Brown, a lawyer representing the neighbors of the proposed shelter site, said they want to “go back to the drawing board and give the (Advisory Neighborhood Commission) an opportunity to presents its issues and concerns.” The suit says input from the Commission is required by D.C. law.
