DCAR Working on Comprehensive Plan

DCAR’s Government Affairs Team is working to help restructure certain elements of the DC Comprehensive Plan. We are engaging with developers, nonprofits, and other industry leaders to determine how to best utilize the District’s land in ways that benefit its residents.

We expect to bring proposals to the Council for their consideration in the coming months. Read more about proposed changes here .
