City Council passes the Comp Plan

The DC City Council today passed the Comprehensive Plan. The document is the product of several years and throusands of hours of citizens input.

On the eve of the vote, Councilman Mendelson introduced amendments to address very specific aspects of the plan, for example, the zoning around the WMATA bus garage at friendship Heights. Such legislation is not comprehensive and goes against the spirit of the document.

Mendelson's amendments were withdrawn and the legislation passed unanimously.

On to the mayor!
