BREAKING: Campus plan criticized by CAG, BCA

In what may be the summer’s most astounding news, The Georgetowner has printed a joint op-ed from the Burleith Citizens Association, the Citizens Association of Georgetown, the Foxhall Community Citizens Association, the Glover Park Citizens Association, and the Hillandale Homeowners Association dissing Georgetown University’s 2010 Campus Plan. In short, our parents had the moon landing, and we will always remember where we were when we heard about this astonishing op-ed.

The news developing around this event has already taken on some bizarre elements. The op-ed decries the increased enrollment of 3,400 students that the plan proposes, but does not specify whether these students will be traditional undergraduates or mostly adults enrolled in the School of Continuing Studies who already have houses in like, Virginia. (Update: Early reports from months and months ago have University officials saying that this is, indeed, the profile of those some three-thousand students. We are still standing by for a response from the BCA and CAG).

Mysteriously, the op-ed also criticizes Georgetown University for building a roof over Kehoe Field, but it is possible that in its feverish coverage of this unfathomable news, Vox has missed out on valuable information concerning the involvement of Georgetown’s field sports athletes in a conspiracy to throw disruptive parties. As for the 80-plus-foot smokestack that Georgetown intends to build over its heating and cooling plant, at this time, there is no evidence that the smokestack will negatively affect surrounding air quality, but we will inform as soon as we can verify the assumption that it will.

Walter Cronkite cried on TV when he read this op-ed.

  1. I’d like to thank the neighbors for providing some much-needed mid-day LOLs as well as the expert analysis of Vox for providing the latest entry in my Neighbors LOLsWatch. Keep it coming, CAG!

  2. There is so much hypocrisy from these so-called neighborhood associations. Lenore Rubino complains about student houses in the neighborhood, but you can go to, search for investment properties, and voila! you get ads for investment properties for rental to students!

    She has claimed that she did not create those listings, and it might be true, but she’s using her site to promote them. Of course, she could prove her integrity by demanding that Remax and Coldwell remove those listings, but I’m not holding my breath.

  3. You are making light of this horrible tragedy by using a picture of the Titanic. The campus plan is at least as devastating as the atomic bomb.

  4. I heard Georgetown is starting a Uranium Enrichment program under that Kehoe Field roof as well

  5. “During this campus plan proposal, I’ve seen a lot of changing, in the way yous feel about me, and in the way I feel about you. In here, there were two sides killing each other, but I guess that’s better than twenty thousand dollars wasted on a community slush fund. I guess what I’m trying to say, is that if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change! “
