Additional Opportunity to Learn About Proposed New Zoning Regulations Announced

Fri., Mar. 28 (8:30am-5pm): The Office of Planning (OP) will be holding the last off a series of “open houses” at 1100 4th Street, SW, Suite E650 to give members of the public an opportunity to find out more information about this complex undertaking and how the proposed changes may affect their properties and neighborhoods. Anyone with questions or comments on the zoning code rewrite is invited to contact OP by email at zoningupdate@dc.gov or by calling (202) 442-7600.

Last November we reported on the forthcoming public meetings scheduled by the DC Zoning Commission on the then proposed rewrite of the District’s zoning regulations, the text of which is available at dcoz.dc.gov/ZRR/ZRR.shtm.

Those hearings were the culmination of a lengthy process leading to the first major revisions to DC zoning regulations since 1958, and followed OP’s January 16, 2013 completion of its city-wide series of community forums. (See, “DC Zoning Regs Overhaul Nearing End; Overlay Districts Unaffected,” InTowner page 1, February 2013 PDF, http://tinyurl.com/pw4wnx4.)

The new regulations will impact every neighborhood in the city. In one of those that this publication specifically focused news coverage, Adams Morgan, well-known neighborhood activists Ann and Larry Hargrove had circulated a detailed analysis, titled “Zoning Regulations Review (ZRR): Implications for Adams Morgan in the final OP draft,” and which is posted on our website at http://tinyurl.com/ldq57n5.
