CLPA List of Upcoming DC Area Policy Meetings (September 11-September 15)

After taking a break for the summer recess, legislative bodies in the DC area are back in action. However, the DC Council won't be having a full Legislative meeting this week; they'll only be holding committee meetings. Plus, there won't be a public meeting of the DC State Board of Education.


Over in Maryland, the Board of Charles County Commissioners has a meeting planned for 9:00 am on September 12. They're also holding a public hearing at 6 pm on September 13 to talk about the 2024 State Legislative Proposal with members of the Charles County House and Senate delegation. On top of that, the Charles County Board of Education is meeting this week on Tuesday at 1:00 pm. They'll be discussing various topics, including updates on education-related matters.


In Montgomery County, the County Council will gather at 9 am on Tuesday. Among other things, there will be a public hearing on bills related to policing and emergency 911 calls. However, the Montgomery County Board of Education won't be having a public meeting this week.


Moving on to Prince George's County, the County Council will meet on Tuesday at 1:30 pm. During this meeting, they're going to give the third and final reading on a bill called CB-065-2023-Universal Design for Housing. This bill aims to make sure that all new homes built in the County are safe and welcoming for everyone, regardless of their physical abilities.

In Virginia, the Alexandria City Council is gearing up for a Legislative meeting on Thursday at 6:00 pm. In this session, they'll receive the Metropolitan Washington Council of Government's (COG) Regional Housing Equity Plan. This plan recognizes that where people live can have a big impact on their opportunities and quality of life. It's all about ensuring that people from different backgrounds, including those with disabilities and various protected classes, can find safe and affordable housing in different neighborhoods.


The plan comes with various regional recommendations, such as increasing the supply of affordable housing, changing zoning policies to promote fair housing, preserving affordable housing, and making public transit more accessible. There are also Alexandria-specific recommendations, like giving priority to public land for affordable housing and providing tax incentives for homeowners who rent to low- and moderate-income tenants. However, the Alexandria City School Board won't be holding a public meeting this week.


As for Arlington County, there won't be a full County Board meeting this week, and the Arlington County School Board won't have a public meeting either.

Staying informed about local policies is of utmost importance as they significantly impact our daily lives. From zoning laws to school funding, these decisions affect everything from the cost of living to the quality of education. Therefore, it's crucial to be aware of what's happening in our communities and voice our opinions when shaping policies that affect us all.


Residents and stakeholders are encouraged to stay informed about these proceedings and engage with their local representatives to contribute to the decision-making process and ensure their voices are heard. CLPA will provide continual updates throughout the week on any new development here on our site, on Twitter: @LocalPolicyCTR, and on Facebook @localpolicycenter.
