The District of Columbia is in the process of amending its 20 year Comprehensive Plan.
The District of Columbia’s Comprehensive Plan is a 20-year framework that guides future growth and development. Originally adopted in 2006 and amended in 2011, it addresses a wide range of topics that affect how we experience the city. These topics include land use, economic development, housing, environmental protection, historic preservation, transportation, and more. The DC Office of Planning has launched an effort to amend the Comprehensive Plan a second time to ensure that it remains responsive to the needs of the community
It's a sprawling document, and I haven're read it all or even most of it, but a few sections stand out as ones that impact cycling, most notably the Transportation element which includes policies on connecting neighborhoods by bike and a whole Policy Section (T2.3) on Bicycle Access. Under that there were a few amendments relevant to cycling adopted during the last amendment process, some of which are trivial (like replacing the words "bus stops" with "transit stops.") One amendment added the following sentence to Policy T-2.3.2: "Bicycle Network"
Increase dedicated bike-use infrastructure, such as bike-sharing programs like Capital Bikeshare, and identify bike boulevards or bike-only rights of way
Another created a whole new action
Action T-2.3.D: Bicycle Sharing Support the expansion of bicycle sharing kiosks throughout the District to develop a complete bicycle-sharing network and encourage bicycling.
The Parks, Recreation and Open Space element also has some biking parts to it, including a section PROS-3.4 Connecting the City Through Trails
They haven't gotten to the process of amending things. as that will happen in the "Formal Amendment Process" starting next year. Right now it appears they are just gathering data and other planning documents. All the Kickoff meetings are over, but there is plenty to read and they're currently soliciting input via an online survey. In 2017 they'll accept amendments during a 60-day open call period. What kinds of things should an amended comp plan include?
