Inclusionary Zoning Comment forums set for Fall

Inclusionary Zoning Discussions

September 13th & 14th and 19th, 2006

To All ANC Commissioners,

The DC Zoning Commission has scheduled public hearings on where Inclusionary Zoning (IZ) will apply in the District for October 5th and 19th. The IZ regulations will require development projects of 10 residential units or more to provide 8%-10% of the units for households earning below 50% and 80% of the Area Median Income ($31,000 to $72,000 depending on family size). The development may be up to 20% larger and receive some zoning flexibility.

The Office of Planning is holding information sessions to review the changes to the IZ program, present OP's draft recommendations on where to apply IZ and to received feed back from ANC members.

Three dates have been chosen for meetings to be held from 6:30pm to 9:00pm in the evening:

September 13: DCPS Oyster School, 2801 Calvert Street, NW
September 14: Pryzbyla University Center, Catholic University
September 19: Marshal Heights CDC Board Room, 2929 Bennint Rd. NE

If you have questions or need directions please contact OP at (202)442-7600.
