We were also outraged that the new policy did not provide for a “scattering” of jets. Nonetheless, we thought ARCHITECTS that there should be a policy so that a cap would at last be put on the growth of National. Before the proposed policy can take effect, it needs Congressional approval, and this has never been forthcoming. No matter what policy is implemented for National Airport (short of closing it down), we in Cabin John will never receive any meaningful noise relief unless and until there is a scattering of jets. In recognition of the unfair burden placed on us and others along the Potomac River corridor, the Washington Council of Governments (COG) voted on May 13 for the testing of a scatter plan. The test was to have occurred for two months in the fall and for two months in the spring. Now we are told by the FAA that due to the controllers strike, no test will be possible until late spring. Nonetheless, we in Cabin John must ensure that there is a test and an eventual permanent scattering of jets. Justice and equity demand nothing less. Law Suit Joel Joseph (who lives in Cabin John) is the attorney for a law suit against National Airport. The purpose of the suit is to make the FAA pay for the right to fly over the plaintiffs’ homes. If we win and set a precedent, then there might be thousands of suits: and the economic rent of National may become so great that some airlines will be forced to move to Dulles. Also the FAA may be encouraged to scatter the jets so that no community has cause for future action. Trial date is set for Feb. 10-16 in the Court Of Claims. ED CLARK 8.

THE VILLAGE NEWS ( Glen Echo Expansion Underway The. Glen Echo Shopping Center at MacArthur Boulevard and Goldsboro Road is currently undergoing extensive construction which will add a second floor,for additional office space, remodel existing and new stores, and improve the overall appearance. The owner, Karl W. Corby Construction Company, Washington, D.C. , is adding 9,000 additional square feet to the existing 13,600 square feet of commercial space. The expansion, which is being completed by the Corby firm, is expected to be completed by early 1982. The design concept and plans were provided by the Kerns Group Architects, Washington. According to the owner, no leases have been signed at this time for the additional offices. The drug store was recently taken over by new owners and is being remodeled as part of the renovation plan. The newest tenant, Pepperidge Thrift Store, recently moved into the space formerly occupied by a beauty salon. According to Rene McDonald, Manager of the new outlet, the firm chose the location because of planned renovations and expansion and the rapid growth in the Glen Echo, Cabin John, Palisades and Potomac ~communities. She said, “Based on our advertising and our repeat customer business, the trends indicate any future tenants in the center should be successful.” The store formerly occupied by a dry cleaning firm is being used as a construction office during the renovations. Present plans call for remodeling this unit for a future pizza parlor and seafood store–a possible new home for Sea-Air, which currently sells from a truck at the Bridge. Upon completion of the work, the parking lot will be repaved and other landscaping • improvements will be made so the complex will be a credit to the community.
