NCPC Parks & Open Space Element
Posted Wednesday, May 2

The National Capital Planning Commission has proposed new policies in the recently released draft of their 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

Public comments can be made through May 7, 2018.
