While summer may be a slower time in DC, OP has been busy moving its projects forward. Most notable, the Comp Plan update hit major milestones in its journey to enactment. The National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) completed its federal interest review and now the document is under congressional review, with an estimated date of enactment of September 25. One would be hard-pressed to find any other local planning document in the country that has received as many approvals from as many different levels of elected and appointed officials as DC’s Comp Plan update.
Recently, the US Census Bureau released an initial set of 2020 Census redistricting data that includes population and housing totals and geographic support products necessary for legislative redistricting for each state following the decennial census. OP’s State Data Center has been reviewing the data and is providing 2020 Census summary tables as well as other resources at https://planning.dc.gov/publication/2020-census-information-and-data as the data becomes available. You can read more below.
