.Public Comment Period Open for Draft Bike Parking Zoning Regulations

As part of the comprehensive DC Zoning Update, the Office of Planning has released a draft of its proposed Bike Parking amendments to the zoning regulations. WABA is reviewing and will submit its comments , but also encourages members and supporters who live, work, or ride in the District to take a moment to review the proposal and provide feedback. These regulations could vastly improve both long-term (employee/resident bike storage) and short-term (bike racks) bike parking, as well as mandating changing rooms and showers in some buildings. Find the Office of Planning’s comment page and link to the full text of the draft regulations here. The public hearing before the Zoning Commission regarding draft changes to parking, bike parking, and loading is scheduled for November 15 at 6:30pm.
