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, December 18 at 7pm
Marie Reed Recreation Center*
2200 Champlain Street, NW
Washington, DC

*(entrance on 18th Street to the right and down the stairs from the school entrance) 

Matters addressed at the November 20 meeting: 

The PZT Committee took no actions at the November 20 meeting, but discussed the items below and would like to hear from members of the community about both issues.

Request for a traffic pattern study at intersection of 18th Street and Florida Ave NW. Send information about experiences at this intersection and any suggestions for improvements to your ANC Commissioner or tweet comments, videos, and images to @AdamsMorganANC.

Discussion of the Comprehensive Plan.

The DC Office of Planning (OP) is amending its Comp Plan, a 20-year framework that guides future growth and development.

ANCs are part of this process and we want to hear from you. If you have comments and suggestions for language to add or remove, please send them to your ANC Commissioner before January 8. Community discussion is welcomed at our upcoming public meetings (December 4th and December 18th) and a resolution from ANC 1C is expected to be considered at the January 8 meeting.

OP is committed to responding to feedback received through ANC resolutions. Feedback sent directly to plandc@dc.gov by December 20 will be synthesized and included in the legislative package to Council. ANC resolutions must be uploaded on the ANC Resolution Portal by January 30, 2020.

This is a large document (and a big undertaking), so we would suggest that you focus on the areas that are most important and relevant to our neighborhood. First, check out the Comp Plan How-to review guide.

The Future Land Use Map Summary and Mid City Element Summary provide a detailed view into the scope and impact of the Comp Plan and Adams Morgan.
