@OPinDC : Summary of Proposed Zoning Regulations Review (ZRR) Amendments for ANC 7C | March 12th, 2014 at 4PM

The Office of Planning (OP) is happy to provide each Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner with a summary of proposed Zoning Regulations Review (ZRR) amendments specifically related to your ANC. The summaries provides a bit of background on the ZRR process and a description of current and next steps, but they mostly address the question “what is of relevance to my ANC?” Topics covered include zone naming, including a list of zones in your ANC (page 7); use permissions; low density residential; parking; accessory apartment; alley lot; corner store; commercial zoning; industrial zoning; downtown; and campus / school plan proposed provisions. Maps are included to help you locate where various provisions would, or would not, apply within your ANC.

This summary is based on the version of the proposed text set down by the Zoning Commission (ZC) on September 9, 2013 for public hearing. A paper copy of the September 9th version is available at each DC public library and a disc copy was provided to each ANC in September 2013. Copies of the full text are also available on our ZRR website (www.DCZoningUpdate.org) and the Office of Zoning website (www.dcoz.dc.gov).

A paper copy of the applicable ANC summary has also been mailed to you; you should receive it shortly. Each summary has also been uploaded to the OP ZRR website with a notice on the OP blogsite, and uploaded to the on-line Office of Zoning record for this case (08-06A). Please feel free to forward this email to residents of your ANC, or forward the links to where this document, and all of the ZRR materials, are available online.

If you or your constituents have questions about or comments on OP’s ZRR proposals, please feel free to contact us at zoningupdate@dc.gov or 202-442-7600, or please attend one of the remaining open houses that OP is holding in March – dates and times are below.
