Stop the Comprehensive Scam!

Good dialog about acess to affordable housing in wealthier areas of the District.

Commissioner M Diop

Chevy Chase Commissioner Randy Speck states they need more lower income housing to bind the city's residence and show diversity. 👍🏾

Give the people planning lawyers!

"Give the residents Lawyers!!" (To combat the already lawyer'd up developers)! I agree! #moretrainingforANCs #GreatWeightforResidents

D.C. development practices are bad for housing — and the environment (Opinion)

Regarding the March 1 Metro article “Bowser moves to limit legal challenges to city development”: Sensible housing will not be the only casualty of the Bowser administration’s proposal to curtail le...

Front line communities are speaking up -- luxury over development comes with environmental and gentrification, plus a $5 coffee.

The race to build up the Buzzard Point area is creating a pollution hazard.

Imagine if the city had planning officials that got creative with public entitlements, and DC's new development included food coops and cooperative restaurants on the first floor of retail/commercial space.

When maximizing profits isn’t the only goal, companies can actually work better.

Repost from @taalib_s using @RepostRegramApp - ... and when you tell me there's significant progress, I'll wait for the proof.

So the city has money for hotels, stadiums, and luxury overdevelopment . . . but doesn't have like 25 million for a hospital to serve East of the River friends and families. #unacceptable

The hospital board had originally said they would consider going to court rather than release audio of this meeting, in which members decided to shut down UMC's obstetrics ward.

Good analysis by Ari Theresa on the resignation of DOES boss. The veil is falling.

"A release explained that the academy is financed by more than $20 million from D.C. government appropriations and private contributions by Pepco (as part of th...e company's controversial merger with Exelon) as well as Washington Gas."

Everybody pays to play but when residents demand benefits from community harming projects the Mayor calls it a nuisance and seeks to end their ability to do the same.

I dont blame DOES director from bailing. The way this Mayor throws people like Chancellor Wilson under the bus I wouldnt have loyalty either. Judging from Zoning Commission, DCPS, and homeless shelters that cost 10x more than should, Id bet there is corruption in DOES he is getting ahead of and does not want to take the fall for. Kudos to him. Somebody run for mayor.

The move leaves Mayor Muriel Bowser without a permanent employment director as she runs for re-election.

"There will be more rainfall but also more drought. Policymakers have difficulty grasping this." As we fly headfirst into climate chaos, these are the same policy makers that have ignored frontline communities of color for generations now.…/washington-sinking-going-g…/

Save our Communities from Gentrification, Displacement & Developer Greed

for the DC Council hearing on the proposed changes to the "Framework" of DC's Comprehensive Plan...
Tuesday, March 20th
John A Wilson Building - 1350 Pennsylvania Ave, NW
1:00 - Rally on the front steps
2:00 - Pack the hearing in room 500

Send a strong message to the DC Council that we will not allow developers and their friends (like our Mayor & Office of Planning) to GUT the city's Comprehensive Plan in their favor.

We demand a strong Comp Plan that REQUIRES housing that is permanently affordable to low income people (below 30% AMI) and large enough for families (3+ bedrooms)! We demand an end to the displacement of residents! We demand equity for Black residents and other communities of color! We demand planning and zoning that is accountable to residents and our city's needs, not developer's greed!

Stand with us at this important hearing! Sign up to testify by emailing by March 16th.
