Planned Unit Development (PUD)

The ZC hears and decides requests for special multi-purpose projects referred to as Planned Unit Developments (PUDs). A PUD is a planning tool which allows a developer greater flexibility in site planning and building design. This flexibility permits the developer to incorporate amenities in the project that exceed those that could have been achieved under the general provisions of the Zoning Regulations. When a project is designated as a PUD, the ZC usually mandates the development of standards specifically tailored to the project.

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.
