Overview:   As a preamble to the public forum later in the day, join this online discussion to learn about the Comprehensive Plan and its function, and to learn why it's time to update the Plan's Federal Elements. The first element up for review is transportation. The chat will focus on how the federal government might become better integrated into the city/regional transportation network; how the regional commuting patterns are changing and what this will mean to federal employees; and how policies of the "Comp Plan" might better respond to Executive Order 13514: Federal Leadership in Environmental, Energy, and Economic Performance.

Moderated by David Alpert, editor of Greater Greater Washington.
