C100 Testimony before NCPC Height Act Study

Nancy MacWood

The Committee of 100 has historically supported the Height Act, which has provided a height framework for implementing the L’Enfant and McMillan Plans and has contributed significantly to creating our grand capital city. Until today the title of this hearing would be readily understood since “Height Master Plan for Washington, DC” does not suggest that there only some parts of Washington that need height protections. But the EDR before you would irrevocably divide the city into protected and unprotected, and would result in visual documentation of the action you may approve today.
