NOTE     

Public discussion of a proposed revision of D.C.’s Zoning Ordinance has raised a number of controversial issues about the future character of development in the District. These include the elimination of required parking for new multi-family housing near public transit, permitting development of small scale retail in residential neighborhoods and permitting accessory housing (granny flats) in single family residential zones. Leading authorities will discuss the goals and methods for zoning reform in a special session of Georgetown Law Professor Peter Byrne’s Land Use Law class.
