On August 1, 2019, the D.C. Policy Center’s article, Single-family zoning and neighborhood characteristics in the District of Columbia, was cited in Greater Greater Washington:

The types—neighborhood conservation areas, neighborhood enhancement areas, land use change areas, and commercial/mixed use areas—are visually displayed on the Plan’s Generalized Policy Map.

The Generalized Policy Map also shows similar spatial patterns as where you are required to build single-family homes (which was the subject of a recent DC Policy Center report), where subsidized units have been built, and where one can find life-saving shade.
