This coming Monday, September 15, at 11:15am, DC for Reasonable Development, a citywide coalition representing all eight wards, will stand in front of an audience of the media, the City Council, and Mayor on the steps of the John A. Wilson building downtown to demand an end to bad planning in DC!
DC4RD will deliver a letter signed by 100+ of the most politically engaged voters in the District demanding that:
- Any action on the proposed zoning regulations be deferred until after a robust public discussion of (and a Council vote on) amendments to the Comprehensive Plan,
- The incoming Mayor appoint a new Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, a new Director of the Office of Planning, and a new member of Zoning Commission,
- The Council require, as a condition of confirmation, that candidates for these positions have a track record of, and a commitment to, constructive engagement with diverse groups of citizens, and that,
- Decisions on controversial public land PUDs be postponed until after these new leaders have been appointed and confirmed.
