Locality Plan Review

As part of its authority to guide the development of the National Capital Region, NCPC reviews plans proposed by local jurisdictions and regional entities. Types of documents include comprehensive, area, transportation, open space, and historic preservation plans.  NCPC determines whether the plans have an impact on a federal interest, and if so, prepares comments to help local agencies coordinate with affected federal entities.
