What Kind of Washington Do You Want? March 29th Ward 1 Candidate Forum Focuses on the Comprehensive Plan

March 28, 2018

The DC Grassroots Planning Coalition has partnered with other local organizations to organize a Ward 1 Candidate Forum for this Thursday, March 29th, beginning at 7 pm. The Forum will be at Busboys and Poets on 14th Street. It should be a good opportunity to learn more more about what the Comprehensive Plan is, how it impacts every neighborhood and resident, and why this election matters. More details about the forum can be found here.

Currently, the Office of Planning and the DC Council is in the process of updating the Comprehensive Plan. I’ve been deeply engaged in these efforts beginning in 2017 when I submitted 64 amendments to the plan in the areas of:

  • Land Use
  • Transportation
  • Parks and Open Space
  • Arts & Culture
  • Historic Preservation
  • and many more.

Following the DC Council’s March 20th marathon 13+ hour hearing I also submitted written testimony, which all can read my testimony here.

 

I think this is an important time when we as a city need to figure out what kind of city we want to be. While the stakes are high and the challenges are great, I have confidence that we can get to where our city needs to be by working together.

How Do You Want DC to Grow? Share Your Ideas with the Office of Planning

October 12, 2016

It is time to update the District’s Comprehensive Plan — the document that will guide development and urban growth for the next 20 years. This is a good time to take stock in what kind of city (and what kind of neighborhoods) you think Washington should be. Fortunately, the Office of Planning is kicking off a series of community meetings in order to hear from you on what you think should be in the plan.

The meeting most convenient to residents of Park View and Columbia Heights will be held on October 19th at the Columbia Heights Education Campus. See the flyer below for details.
