Introduction and Preliminary matters for the Zoning Commission Public Hearing of November 20, 2008.
Time: 00:28:51 - 00:31:24
Case #08-06-6 - Office of Planning -- ZRR: Industrial
(Text Amendment) This Notice of Public Hearing announces the sixth 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 changes to the zoning regulations in relation to industrial districts, which OP recommends renaming "Production, Distribution, and Repair" ("PDR") districts. The proposal reflects changes to the way that industrial uses would be regulated in industrial zones. It proposes the changes in allowable density to promote PDR uses. The recommendations also propose standardizing the buffering requirements to allow removal of separate special exception and overlay requirements.
