DC Zoning Commission - Public Hearing on the Arts

Thursday September 18 at at 630pm at 441 4th St. NW, the DC  Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing on the recommended changes to the Zoning Code in the areas of Arts and Culture. There has been little publicity for this event, but it is an important one for DC artists.

I was part of the working group that worked through a number of ideas and came up with a series of recommendations based on a look at codes in other cities and an analysis of the success and failures of the current DC code as it relates to artists and arts lovers.

You can see some of our recommendations by clicking here. These have gone through one set of review, at the staff level, and now will be the topic of the hearing on September 18.
