Not Another Dry Cleaner in Bloomingdale sign now

PETITION REQUESTING A DIFFERENT BUSINESS USE FOR 1821 1ST STREET, NW

The undersigned residents of Bloomingdale request that Yong C. Choe and any other owners of 1821 1st Street, NW (Square 3110 Lot 0137 at the northeast corner of 1st Street and Seaton Place) Washington, DC 20001 use this property for some other business that the neighborhood needs rather than a dry cleaning business. Although we definitely appreciate the owners efforts to rehabilitate a long-vacant building and put it back into useful service, we do not support the opening of a second dry cleaning establishment. This area needs a variety of services that we do not have currently and which we as neighbors would support heartily. These services include sit-down, full-service restaurants, boutiques, stationery and card stores, consignment shops, electronics stores, child-care centers, hardware stores, bakeries, delicatessens, diners, pet grooming establishment, vet clinic, bank, etc. These are businesses that we want, that we need, and that we will patronize. We are not likely to patronize another dry cleaning establishment.

Out of a concern for the owners and their investment and out of concern for the long-term well-being of Bloomingdale, we are coming to you now before the reconstruction of 1821 has gone too far. We want your business to succeed; we fear that your current concept will not, to your detriment and ours. Our elected representatives are ready and willing to meet with you at any time.

    Two dry cleaners would mean that one would have more business than the other. With that occurring, it would cost more to operate the "extra" dry cleaners.

    It is not logical to put a dry cleaners 1 step away from another one. The residents who live here would appreciate some other benefit to the neighborhood.

    Bloomingdale needs more businesses, but another dry cleaner will not be embraced by the community. We neither need it nor want it. Please open another type of business instead (not a liquor store). We are your future customers.

    I will not patronize this establishment if it is a dry cleaner. I will walk past it to use the cleaners at 1st and Rhode Island rather than stop here.
