Dear Members and Friends,
For those of us who are opposed to the changes the Office of Planning has proposed to the Comprehensive Plan, it is extremely important to pack the hearing room on Tuesday, March 20, 2018. The Council Chair is holding a hearing on the Comprehensive Plan beginning at 2:00 pm. This is our opportunity to voice our concerns and defeat this plan. Information on the proposed changes can be found in our website, dccitizensfederation.org. The DC Grassroots Planning Coalition is holding a planning session on Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 1:30-4:00 pm at Union Temple Church located at 1225 W Street SE to inform and prepare for the hearing and actions to defeat developer driven amendments.
As previously announced, The Citizens Federation is holding an At-Large Candidates and Chairman’s Forum on April 14, 2018 in the Masonic Temple Ballroom, 1000 U Street NW. Doors will open at 10:00 am with the forum starting at 11:00 am. The building is located next to a metro. This is a totally member driven event. Panelist will be chosen from member organizations and we want them to ask the questions that are important to you and your communities. Please send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and spread the word in your associations and communities that your questions are welcomed.
