National Capital Planning Commission.
Release of the Draft Comprehensive Plan for the National Capital: Federal Elements and authorization for public comment.
The National Capital Planning Commission has released a draft of the Federal Elements of the Comprehensive Plan for the National Capital for public review. The Federal Elements cover matters relating to Federal properties and Federal interests in the National Capital Region and serves as a blueprint for the long-term development of the National Capital. The plan provides the decisionmaking framework for actions that the Commission takes on specific plans and proposals submitted for its review. Plan elements include: Federal Workplace: Location, Impact, and the Community; Foreign Missions and International Organizations; Transportation; Parks and Open Space; Federal Environment; Preservation and Historic Features; and Visitors. The Commission updated the plan to address new policy issues and planning concerns that have surfaced since the previous adoption of the Federal elements in the mid-1980s. The revised elements respond to the changing needs of the Federal Government and the Nation's capital and provide goals and policies for future Federal development in the Washington area.
