Zoning 101 at the Tenleytown Library

The Office of Zoning (OZ) is conducting community meetings in every Ward in the District to inform citizens about zoning. The educational series of presentations Zoning 101, 201, and 301, will cumulatively provide a detailed collection of information that will bring an even more solid foundation of zoning knowledge to the community.

On April 27, 2011, OZ will be presenting Zoning 101: Zoning Basics to Ward 3 Advisory Neighborhood Commissions and citizens. Zoning 101 is a presentation on zoning essentials and does not address more complex aspects of process and procedure.
