The Zoning Process For DC's New Soccer Stadium Begins Next Week: Figure 1

The zoning process for the new DC United stadium will begin next week.

On March 14th, the Zoning Commission will consider whether or not to set down the application for the review of a planned unit development (PUD) for the new 19,000-seat stadium in Buzzard Point. A set down meeting is essentially where the Zoning Commission decides whether or not a zoning case is ripe for review. If the Commission approves the set down, the case will be opened up for public comment and a date will be set when the Commission will hold a hearing to consider the PUD.
