Recommend AGAINST the issuance of a permit for the installation of three "temporary" wooden trellis structures, ranging in height from 9'-6" to 11'-6", at an existing sidewalk cafe for Root Cellar Whiskey Bar, as shown in materials received and dated 6 September 2019, as inappropriate for the public space of Pennsylvania Avenue. Staff notes with regret that these structures were installed without a permit after they were removed from the previous permit scope of work at the request of staff. Existing structures to be removed immediately. Refer to National Park Service. Refer to DC Public Space Committee. Refer to General Services Administration. Refer to National Capital Planning Commission. Refer to DC Historic Preservation Office.
