Comprehensive Plan for the National Capital: Federal Elements - Amendments to the Federal Workplace Element
(File number CP01G)

The National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) adopted updated policies for the Comprehensive Plan for the National Capital's Federal Workplace Element. The Federal Elements are blueprints for long-range federal development in the National Capital Region, and set out policies and goals that guide federal planning. The Federal Workplace Element specifically provides guidance to federal agencies on locating, developing, and managing federal workplaces. The updated polices would not go into effect until all of the Federal Elements are updated and ready for publishing.

The updated element's policies reflect changes since the Comp Plan was last updated in 2004 including how federal facilities are located, managed, and arranged. In addition to the reorganization of policy areas and update to various sections, the changes were primarily directed to updating federal employment data, providing a focus on the siting of federal facilities, and providing guidance to federal agencies on the reuse of federal land and space.
