C100 Comments on ZC Case No. 23 08

In asking for PUD flexibility, Wesley has turned the regular IZ program into a pretzel. In short, the modified IZ program proposed by Wesley is a square peg that doesn’t fit in the round IZ hole. The precedent could have city-wide implications that could undermine the IZ program to the detriment of eligible DC residents. There is a way to include DHCD administered IZ units as part of a student residence program, but this isn’t it. The Applications should be denied.
