Citywide Planning Division

The Citywide Planning Division is responsible for guiding long-term (20-year) planning and policy decisions for the District of Columbia. The three units that comprise the Citywide Planning Division work collaboratively to identify, analyze, interpret and explain emerging trends in the District. They also evaluate existing and proposed policies in light of detailed data analysis. The Citywide Planning Division is composed of three units:

Comprehensive Planning, which develops and monitors the District Elements of the Comprehensive Plan, the District's only legislatively mandated plan. This unit recently completed revising the District Elements of the Comprehensive Plan. To view the 2006 District Elements of the Comprehensive Plan, please select here.
