Connecticut Avenue Development Guidelines Design Survey

As part of the Connecticut Avenue Development Guidelines planning process, the DC Office of Planning (OP) held two in-person Community Design Conversations, in October, to explore future development potential and public space enhancements in Woodley Park and Cleveland Park. Attendees participated in a facilitated experience and shared their thoughts on opportunities for potential public space enhancements as well as development scenarios that increase opportunities for housing and affordable housing production while complementing the historic districts.

This online survey encompasses the public space design and development scenarios that were shared at the in-person events and provides an opportunity for those who have not attended, or would like to provide further feedback, to do so online. The survey will be open until December 11.

The Connecticut Avenue Development Guidelines is a neighborhood planning effort focused on the Cleveland Park and Woodley Park neighborhoods and is part of a broader Rock Creek West Corridors Planning initiative outlined in the 2021 Rock Creek West Road Map. The planning process is led by the DC Office of Planning (OP) and is intended to implement the Comprehensive Plan Act of 2021, particularly where land use designations have been updated along Connecticut Ave.

The Development Guidelines will explore how to support the need for additional housing, particularly affordable housing, in these high-capacity transit nodes while allowing for development that is compatible in character with the established historic districts. The effort will be undertaken in collaboration with OP’s Historic Preservation Office and the Historic Preservation Review Board to determine how design can both support the historic districts and meet the new land use designations provided in the updated Comprehensive Plan.
