Today, our city is over 700,000 Washingtonians strong.

That’s 700,000+ reasons to love DC, and 700,000+ old and new dreams for the future of our city. Let’s bring them together - with the Comp Plan as our guide.

During the three-year [PLAN] DC amendment process, the Bowser Administration and the Office of Planning have talked to stakeholders, collected proposed amendments, and conducted an in-depth analysis of DC’s current Comprehensive (Comp) Plan.

After hearing and learning from DC residents, we are designing an amended Comp Plan by and for all DC residents. We compiled the ideas posed by the DC community into eight tangible values. These values will guide our decision-making process and determine what issues to prioritize through the amended Comp Plan.

And we want to know: did we hear you?


These eight key values reflect the concerns that are most important to DC residents.

  • Accessibility

  • Diversity

  • Equity

  • Livability

  • Opportunity

  • Prosperity

  • Resilience

  • Safety

Learn more about each of these values and how they will guide the amended Comp Plan.
