1. Discussion – 6301 Kilmer Street Report
Decision Required: None.

The Town has hired an architect to review the property and structures.  The Town has requested information that will allow planning for future use, funding and progressive steps to move the project forward. The staff is not in receipt of the report to date and hopes to provide it prior to the Worksession.

2. Tremont Avenue Speed Hump Request
Decision Required: Whether to approve.
The Staff installed the speed/volume counter upon receipt of the request.  The results were provided at the last Worksession and discussed. Additional neighbor input has been sought prior to a decision. Based on this information, staff does not think a speed hump is warranted.

3. Valley Way Speed Hump Repairs – Raised Crosswalks
Decision Required: Whether to repair or replace.

The Staff were directed to look at the possibility of installing raised crosswalks on the end of the blocks where the current speed hump in need of repair exists.  The Director of Public Works has provided technical data regarding this matter in order to properly make a determination.  If the Mayor and Council wish to remove the speed hump and install “bookend” raised crosswalks, then this can be accomplished in the spring.  Discussed at the last Worksession, additional neighbor input has been sought prior to a decision.

4. FY16 Town Audit
Decision Required: None.

The FY16 Audit was distributed in early December.  All questions provided have been answered.

5. FY17 Capital Improvement Program
Decision Required: None.

The Department of Public Works and the Police Department have prepared memorandums describing the needs of each Department for items that should be considered in the FY17 Capital Improvement Program Budget.  A separate folder was been provided at the last Worksession, please bring this to the meeting and to future budget discussion meetings.  A new priority listing has been included in the package.

6. Earth Conservation Corps Pizza Funding
Decision Required: Whether to fund.
The Mayor has added this item and will address.  The ECC will be in Town from the mid-west to clean the streams in our area.  The discussion will be the funding of lunch for these volunteers.

7. Liquor License
Decision Required: Whether to take a position.

The Mayor has added this item to the agenda as Angel’s Restaurant and the Howard Johnson’s have liquor license requests before the County.

8.  Wal-Mart Expansion
Decision Required: Whether to approve letter to oppose.

The Mayor and Town Council have taken the position to oppose Wal-Mart’s request to expand and add a grocery element to the existing location at Capital Plaza.  The Mayor will provide a letter for approval.

9. Bike Infrastructure MOU
Decision Required: Whether to approve.

This item was on the last Worksession and a copy of the Anacostia Trails Heritage Area Memorandum of Understanding for the Inter-Municipal Bikeways Working Group has been included in the package for consideration.
