About Ward 3

Connecticut Avenue - UDC Commercial Corridor Enhancement Study - cover

Planning in Ward 3

The Comprehensive Plan for the National Capital: District Elements has Area Elements (chapters) that provide geographically-specific policy guidance. Area Elements that cover neighborhoods within Ward 3 include:

  • Rock Creek West – This area element completely encompasses the neighborhoods in Ward 3, as well as the neighborhoods in Ward 4 west of Rock Creek Park.

The Comprehensive Plan’s Area Elements use planning boundaries, not Ward boundaries. The Comprehensive Plan is a 20-year plan, while Ward boundaries are political boundaries that can change every 10 years due to redistricting following the decennial Census.

The Comprehensive Plan Amendment project web page is plandc.dc.gov. Questions, comments and feedback on the Comprehensive Plan should be emailed to [email protected].
