Zoning Regulations of The District of Columbia
United States of America

Domino's Pizza Inc. is a large American pizza restaurant chain and one of their local restaurants in Georgetown will be closing due to redevelopment. The Application of Team Washington, Inc. d/b/a Domino's Pizza is filing for a special exception for a variance, to establish their fast food and food delivery establishment in the MU-27 and R-13 zones located at 2330 Wisconsin Avenue, NW, in the Glover Park neighborhood. Domino's is seeking zoning relief for a project or use that is not allowed for the zoning district.

Domino's hours of operation will be from 10am-3am and will potentially cause noise disturbances for residences in this area late into the evening. Also trash that this type of business will bring, aides in the breeding ground for the city’s rat population and would increase this activity and put further strain on our neighborhood’s ability to deter rodents.

A fast food chain such as Domino's Pizza, which operates into the early morning hours with delivery of food located in a highly residential area, not only brings trash, noise and rodents, but safety concerns for its neighbors and children. Delivery drivers bring increased danger entering and exiting the parking lot onto the 2300 block of 37th Street NW and will also add additional traffic on the 2300 block Wisconsin Avenue during the evening hours when their delivery pattern changes.

Their delivery hours are Sunday-Thursday 10:00am-2:00am and Friday-Saturday 10:00am-3:00am which are concerning for all residence and are unsafe, especially reckless delivery drivers who are in a rush to make deliveries. Not only is Glover Park a heavy pedestrian neighborhood, but within 150 feet of this proposed location there are 10+ children under the age of 9 who are often walking to and from school and around the neighborhood daily.

Our neighborhood currently has a handful of local run businesses which makes us unique. Our neighborhood would like to support a retail business that benefits everyone and brings more diversity vs. another fast food chain.

We are asking that you sign this document opposing this special exception variance for Domino's Pizza and stand together to create the change we want to see in the neighborhood.

We, the undersigned, are concerned residence who urge the Zoning Committee to oppose this variance and we ask that you reconsider the application of Team Washington, Inc. d/b/a Domino’s Pizza.

Thank You
