Planning Zoning and Transportation Committee

ANC1C has three Committees to help assess matters that are brought before the Commission. The Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee has jurisdiction over matters such as development, zoning, traffic, and public transit.  One of the key roles of the Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee is to assess requests for changes to zoning requirements and the use of public space. Matters that are currently under review by the Committee and  matters that were previously addressed by the Committee can be found by clicking here.

If you would like ANC1C to consider a matter for which the Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee has jurisdiction, please provide all relevant materials to the Chair of the Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee at least three weeks prior to the date of the Committee meeting at which you would like the matter to be considered.  Any recommendations made by the Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee with respect to your matter would typically then be scheduled for deliberation and voting by the full Commission at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the full Commission.

Next meeting:

Wednesday, February 20 at 7pm

-1630-32-34 Argonne Place NW: a resolution to authorize modifications to ANC 1C’s appeal of BZA Case 19938 to address issues identified in the December 2018 permit as well as any subsequent permits that fail to address errors identified in ANC 1C’s November 2018 resolution.
-1834 Ontario Road NW: a resolution seeking to make BZA and the Office of Zoning aware of DCRA’s failure to enforce the BZA ruling in Case 19771 which required restoration of a porch.

The following items were discussed but no votes were taken:

-Parking proposal for 1700 block of Kalorama: The ANC will continue to discuss options with the community with the goal of voting on a proposal at the March 6th meeting.
-2910 and 2920 18th Street: the PZT committee discussed the necessity of updating previously adopted ANC1C resolutions in light of recently issued permits. It was determined that at this point in time a letter is sufficient.
