C100 Comments on OP Draft Wisconsin Avenue Development Framework

Shelly Repp

The draft Framework is a glossy PR piece of what the upper Wisconsin corridor could look like. However, it is unlikely that the proposed up-zoning alone will lead to that result. The Framework falls far short of satisfying Comprehensive Plan requirements of providing for truly affordable housing, assuring adequate supporting infrastructure, and protecting contiguous neighborhoods from massive overshadowing without adequate step-downs in place. Critical implementation details, including mechanisms to achieve the Framework’s vision, are missing.
