NCPC Parks & Open Space Element Open Houses
Posted Monday, March 19

The National Capital Planning Commission is holding two open houses to discuss their new policies proposed in the recently released draft of Parks & Open Space Element.

The Comprehensive Plan's Parks & Open Space Element establishes policies to protect and enhance the many federal parks and open spaces in our region, and to promote improvements to the regional open space network. NCPC uses these policies to guide agency actions, including review of projects and long-range plans that affect federal parks and open spaces. The Comprehensive Plan's elements are updated on a rolling basis, and the Parks & Open Space Element was last updated in 2004

The open houses are being held on March 21 from 6:00-7:30p and April 12 from 10:30a-12:00p at the NCPC's offices located at 401 9th Street, NW, Suite 500, Washington, DC 20004. Both events will present the same material.

Public comments can be made through May 7, 2018.
