In October, the Office of Planning reached a significant milestone in our commitment to open data and transparency with the release of the new OP Demographic Data Hub. This user-friendly website makes popular demographic charts and data much more accessible for residents, researchers, and other stakeholders. It is yet another way in which we work to better meet residents where they are. Read more about the new data hub below.
In November, OP will continue to support the DC Council’s Subcommittee on Redistricting by providing testimony at the public hearing on the Ward Redistricting Amendment Act of 2021 on November 5th. OP will also provide testimony at the Committee of the Whole’s public hearing on the Comprehensive Plan Future Land Use Map and Generalized Policy Map Approval Resolution of 2021 on November 3rd.
Please stay tuned, as we will continue to provide updates on all of these efforts as we look to support our shared values and goals. As always, we encourage you to share our newsletter with others, who can sign up here. In addition, you can follow our work on Twitter under @OPinDC.
