Development Review and Zoning

The Development Review Division of the DC Office of Planning (OP) assesses plans that are generally large, complex, and precedent-setting in their potential to change the character of an area. While development is viewed as the economic engine of the District, protecting the integrity of neighborhoods is equally important. The Development Review Division encourages growth in a way that is sensitive to the needs and values of neighborhoods.
