At a special public meeting held on January 14, 2016, the Zoning Commission UNANIMOUSLY voted to approve a new zoning code for the District of Columbia, replacing the current zoning code adopted in 1958. These new regulations will be in effect on September 6, 2016.
The final Order for ZR-16 has now been published in the DC Register, and the Order and is available on the Office of Zoning website as well as the OP Zoning Regulations Review website. The final version of the zoning regulations is also available on the OZ website. While all of these changes have already received extensive public discussion, OP will continue to work with the Office of Zoning and Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs to organize ANC, public, and stakeholder information sessions, to help everyone get familiar and comfortable with using the new regulations, prior to the effective date.
