In 2007, the Office of Planning began a comprehensive revision of the city’s Zoning Regulations. The proposed changes have been the subject of recent public hearings before the Zoning Commission, and additional hearings have been scheduled for January and February, 2014 to allow further public comment on the changes. Three policy areas have been the particular focus of the Committee of 100 – Parking, Accessory Dwelling Units and Neighborhood Character.
The Committee of 100 on the Federal City seeks to promote land use policies and practices that are in conformance with the city’s Comprehensive Plan; and, to sustain and safeguard the fundamental values derived from the tradition of the L’Enfant Plan and the McMillan Commission.
Below you will find slides and notes from two recent PowerPoint presentations and Fact Sheets, which the Committee of 100 developed to highlight proposed land use policy changes within the context of the current zoning regulations; and, suggested actions to inform the Zoning Commission that the changes may not be in the best interest of the city.
Please look at the Powerpoint slides for an overview of how zoning revisions could change your neighborhood. Also download and distribute the Fact Sheets to your neighbors. Community members are encouraged to testify or submit written comments to the Zoning Commission.
Notice of four ward-based Zoning Commission community meetings and a special meeting for all ANC Commissioners on the Zoning Regulation Revision, including locations and dates, is posted on the Office of Zoning Website: www.dcoz.dc.gov. Directions for written submissions to the Zoning Commission on proposed changes to the Zoning Regulations are posted on the same website.
