The Office of Planning (OP) will hold a series of Open House meetings (see the table below for date, time, and location information) to provide residents an opportunity to discuss the draft proposed changes to zoning regulations with OP staff. The Zoning Commission set down the draft proposed ZRR text on September 9, 2013, and has been holding public hearings to gather input. The hearings are ongoing at this time, and the Commission plans to leave the record open to take testimony until at least April 17, 2014. Detailed information about the hearings and how to submit testimony in the case can be found on the Office of Zoning website at http://www.dcoz.dc.gov/ZRR/ZRR.shtm.
The Open Houses are intended to provide residents an opportunity to gather information about the proposed changes and ask questions in an informal setting and residents are encouraged to drop in at any time. OP staff will be available at the Open Houses to discuss the proposed changes on a one-on-one basis with individuals that have questions in advance of attending a hearing or submitting testimony. OP will make copies of the draft proposed text available at each location. Copies of the proposed text are available on the OP and OZ website and at each public library.
