Planning Zoning and Transportation Committee

ANC1C has three Committees to help assess matters that are brought before the Commission. The Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee has jurisdiction over matters such as development, zoning, traffic, and public transit.  One of the key roles of the Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee is to assess requests for changes to zoning requirements and the use of public space. Matters that are currently under review by the Committee and  matters that were previously addressed by the Committee can be found by clicking here.

If you would like ANC1C to consider a matter for which the Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee has jurisdiction, please provide all relevant materials to the Chair of the Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee at least three weeks prior to the date of the Committee meeting at which you would like the matter to be considered.  Any recommendations made by the Planning, Zoning, and Transportation Committee with respect to your matter would typically then be scheduled for deliberation and voting by the full Commission at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the full Commission.
