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.

The Development Review Division encourages growth in a way that is sensitive to the needs and values of neighborhoods.
