(WASHINGTON, DC) – On Tuesday, October 27, the Office of Planning (OP), in partnership with the Georgetown University Global Cities Initiative, will celebrate the legacy of twenty years of comprehensive planning in the District and explore new pathways to equity. The virtual event will feature DC’s five most recent planning directors, spanning over two decades.
This round table discussion is open to the public and will focus on the process and impact of twenty years of comprehensive planning and look forward at how the proposed Comprehensive Plan update positions the District for a new set of challenges over the next twenty years.
The proposed Comprehensive Plan update positions the District to achieve critical goals around economic recovery, housing, equity, and resilience. Updating the Comprehensive Plan is more critical now than ever. In addition to providing a suite of tools and approaches that can be immediately applied in response to the economic, social, and public health impacts caused by COVID-19, an updated Comp Plan is a critical component of the Mayor Bowser’s goal to build 36,000 new homes by 2025, including 12,000 affordable homes.
