WASHINGTON (Nov. 11, 2013) — Is the District of Columbia emerging as a “second Brooklyn”? Commentators like Andrew Sullivan think so. But are current land-use and development regulations holding it back?

Local and federal authorities are considering changes to D.C.’s height limit, and the Office of Planning has embarked on a multi-year effort to review and amend zoning regulations, including relaxed parking minimums and additional mixed-use zoning. But should they consider more expansive changes?

Our panel of experts will discuss what they each feel is the most-pressing land-use issue today and offer their own public policy recommendations to address them.

In addition, In My Backyard DC (IMBYdc) founder and R Street Institute Associate Policy Analyst Michael Hamilton will unveil a new website to help residents combat NIMBYism and organize their efforts to build a better, more livable district.

Please join the R Street Institute, Cloture Club, and IMBYdc for a panel discussion featuring:
