An Overview of DC Zoning Regulations

An Overview of the District of Columbia Zoning Regulations
Recently, the DCRA Office of the Zoning Administrator (OZA) invited stakeholders to join us for a virtual event to learn more about zoning resources available to help customers better understand how the OZA interprets regulations set forth by the Office of Zoning (DCOZ), a District government agency independent from DCRA. As one of the entities involved in the zoning process, the OZA administers, interprets, and enforces the DC Zoning Regulations, DCMR Title 11.
With more than 100 virtual attendees tuning in, the OZA introduced and provided an overview of the origin, purpose, and benefits of Zoning Interpretations – to raise awareness of particular issues to the development community and other customers. In response to reoccurring questions from applicants and citizens, DCRA has published 30 zoning interpretations to date. These interpretations provide clarification of regulations, inform residents and businesses of several long-standing practices, and provide a common and uniform basis for consistency in applying the zoning provisions here in the District of Columbia.
