Case #08-06-11 - Office of Planning -- ZRR: Waterfront
(Text Amendment) This Notice of Public Hearing announces the tenth of several proposed subject areas the Zoning Commission for the District of Columbia (the "Commission") will consider under this docket. All recommendations offered by the Office of Planning ("OP") under this docket have been reviewed by a working group and a subject matter task force as part of a process designed to ensure full public participation. Nevertheless, this process cannot replace or limit the public hearing process required in the Zoning Act or the Commission's responsibility to consider the merits of each proposal submitted. This hearing will consider general recommendations for conceptual changes to the zoning regulations to update waterfront zoning. The recommendations seek to address the existing waterfront zones and related overlays. The recommendations focus on achieving Comprehensive Plan policies through zoning, including improved public access, connectivity, visual access, mixed use, open space, and sustainability. Specific recommendations include updated PUD standards for waterfront zones; a limitation on surface parking, and new standards for industrial uses, setbacks and visual access.
