The Council finds that:

(1) The District of Columbia Office of Public Records and Archives ("the Archives") is currently headquartered at 1300 Naylor Court, N.W.

(2) The Fiscal Year 2017 Local Budget Act of 2016, enacted on June 15, 2016 (D.C. Act 21-414; 63 DCR 8786), provides funding to allow the Archives to relocate to a site that meets several criteria outlined in a report commissioned by the Department of General Services, which found that the preferred alternative would be a stand-alone, purpose-built, new facility requiring approximately 135,000 gross building square feet.

(2) The Archives building is to be a mix of high-quality, environmentally controlled storage space, and several thousand square feet of space for the public to access the Archives, office space, and meeting space.

(3) The District desires to relocate the Archives to a new facility to be developed on Lots 36, 41, and 802 in Square 3942 and Parcels 0143/107 and 0143/110 ("W Street Site") that, combined, comprise approximately 147,000 square feet.

(4) The W Street Site is currently occupied by a private trash transfer station.

(5) The trash transfer station is a blighting factor in Brentwood and its surrounding communities.

(6) Residents of Brentwood and the surrounding communities have concerns regarding the noxious fumes that emanate from the trash transfer station and pervasive vermin, and have complained that there is an increased incidence of health concerns.

(7) The W Street Site trash transfer station continues to operate as an open-air trash transfer station, which allows its pungent odors to reach much farther than they would if the facility were closed.

(8) Since August 2012, the District Department of the Environment has conducted at least 37 inspections and issued 8 notices of infractions to the W Street Site trash transfer station.

(9) The W Street Site will provide an opportunity to construct and establish a state-of-the-art archival government facility that is centrally located within the District of Columbia and in close proximity to Metrorail and Metrobus service.
