Exploring the Legacy of NCPC and Federal Planning in the Nation’s Capital

How has our past shaped the nation’s capital we see today? The National Capital Planning Commission’s 2024 Centennial offers an opportunity to understand how ambitions to create an inspiring and beautiful city have wrestled with the reality of responding to the needs of all residents.

Join us for the launch of the exhibit, Planning Washington: Capital and Community, and a probing panel conversation on the agency’s role in shaping Washington and how the lessons of our past can inform planning for a resilient and equitable region.
