LEGAL EFFORTS


[recent]
THE COURT VACATES THE ZONING ORDERS

DC Zoning Commissioners have long held that land use and zoning review had to only concern itself with traffic and the color of the brick. The highest court in the District reset the erroneous posture of the Deputy Mayor's Office for Planning and Economic Development (DMPED), as well as those of DMPED's subordinate agencies, Office of Planning (OP) and the Historic Preservation Office (HPO).

The Court of Appeals decision also clarifies the fundamental planning scope for Zoning Commissioners as per the city's land use and preservation directives and guidelines in the DC Comprehensive Plan. The Court makes plain, city planning policies and laws concerning land value destabilization and advserse impacts on the environment and other public services must be under zoning review when major developments are proposed.
