What's Happening at the DC Office of Planning?

Monday, January 27, 2020

Happy 2020, friends of OP! As we kick off this new decade, we continue to work each day support the Mayor’s vision for a vibrant and equitable city. We are moving forward each of our top three priorities:

  1. We are on track toward Council passage of Comp Plan update in 2020. Currently, we are in the final stages of public review of, having heard from over 1,000 residents before the public deadline of January 10. ANCs have until February 14 to provide their official feedback and OP is on track to submit the Mayor’s proposal Council this Spring, which would provide DC Council time to have their hearings prior to summer recess. You can learn more by visiting plandc.dc.gov.
  2. Along with our housing agency partners, we continue to support Mayor Bowser’s bold goal of 36,000 new housing units by 2025, with our latest efforts shared below. #36,000by2025.
  3. We are working to make sure every DC resident counts in DC Census 2020, which will occur on April 1. We need your help in making sure we get the word out and supporting our residents in completing their Census form. You can learn more and get involved by visiting dccensus2020.dc.gov.

OP’s three priorities are closely aligned with Mayor Bowser’s 2020 Accountability Report, released on January 13, 2020, which provides a comprehensive look at the District’s priorities and achievements.
