Zoning & Planning... is that what they call it?

This site has been developed to connect communities located throughout the District contending with problem projects -- projects which may be entirely public, private, and/or a combination of public and private.

The ad-hoc, unscientific, opaque planning review and decision making happening in the District of Columbia right now exposes every DC resident to dispossession and other serious risks. The corporate condominium construction explosion is happening at the same time The City is closing schools, shrinking the safety net, and systematically dismantling our communities. Disinterested DC officials and their purposeful poor planning continues to leave entire DC neighborhoods disconnected, displaced, and downright disrespected.

It's time poor planning in the City ends now.

Connecting and Sharing is Important for Positive Change!

DC FOR REASONABLE DEVELOPMENT PROVIDES THE TOOLS AND RESOURCES TO ACT.

Consider the DC4RD website a network of information and resources which examines 21st Century development and how it unfolds here in the Nation's Capital. Can it be better? Can there be development without displacement? Can planning officials follow their own rules? These are just some questions for a modern humankind which seeks open and transparent cooperation, meaningful participation, and astute findings substantiated by facts and reasoning.

DC4RD IS SERVING THE ENTIRE CITY ACROSS ALL LINES AND LOOKING TO TEAR DOWN IGNORANCE

DC has only a finite amount of public property.

DC4RD is a unincorporated citizens association formed by participating DC residents for the non-profit civic purpose of reviewing, evaluating, and acting on development projects, policies, and laws affecting neighborhoods throughout the City.
