Different Andrew here. Problem with Andrew above's theory is that ADUs as proposed already exist, except the people who can live in them currently must be household employees, not renters. Same impact of cars, same impact of "sewage" etc. They aren't rampant now and won't be under the new rules. Wy? Because building or expanding one will still require a variance.

In terms of the corner store, two of the most successful corner stores are in Ward 3: Jetti's in Foxhall and Broadbranch Market in Chevy Chase. These are both very well supported very beloved community members. Why shouldn't other neighborhoods in the Ward have an opportunity for these "third places"?

Finally, transit zones. The practical reality for Ward 3 is virtually no impact. The transit zones on Connecticut Avenue are mostly in historic districts, except for maybe the Szechuan Palace site near Albemarle in Van Ness. On Wisconsin Avenue, except for the Babes site, which was repurposing an existing foundation for new development, any new proposals will likely have parking because the developer will acknowledge the market will demand it.
