The DC Office of Planning (OP) released the Draft Chevy Chase Small Area Plan (CCSAP) on March 14, 2022. The Commission sent a letter to Interim Director Cozart on March 15, 2022 asking for a longer than 30-day period of public review and comment period, which OP agreed to.
The Draft CCSAP public comment period now runs March 14, 2022 through May 13, 2022 (60 days). Written comments are encouraged, and can be submitted using an online form found on the project webpage (https://publicinput.com/chevychase).
The Public Hearing date and location for the Draft CCSAP was rescheduled and now takes place on:
Date: Tuesday, April 26, 2022
Time: 2pm – 7pm
Location: Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church (Chadsey Hall), One Chevy Chase Circle, NW
**Livestream: The hearing will also be livestreamed via OP’s YouTube channel**
There is no deadline for individuals to sign up to participate in the public hearing. You can show up to provide oral testimony even if you do not sign up in advance. Limit is 3 minutes per testifier.
Hearing participants can also submit written comments by the May 13 public comment deadline.
