      July Monthly Meeting: The Comprehensive Plan and You

      clock 12:00 pm

      location PNC Bank, 800 17th St NW, Washington, DC 20006, USA

      Join us at our next Monthly Meeting when CNHED will host the Director of the Office of Planning, Eric Shaw, as he begins the community engagement process for revising the District’s Comprehensive Plan.

      Over the next year, the Office of Planning will ask community members to provide input on revising the Plan, and ultimately the future of the District’s development and neighborhoods!

      Changes to the Plan will impact housing, commercial corridors, large scale economic development, the District’s density, zoning, public spaces and the arts, environment, transportation, and more.

      Insights from CNHED’s membership will be critical to making it more equitable for all residents!
