Calfee Zoning has been awarded two full zoning code re-write projects in the Washington, D.C. region, one in Kent County, Maryland, located on the eastern side of the state across the bay from Baltimore and Annapolis, and also in Vienna, Virginia, located 17 miles west of Washington, D.C. The award of these two projects dovetails with the opening of Calfee’s Washington, D.C. office.
Kent County has a population of 20,000 people and is a part of the regional tidal basin, which protects the entire eastern United States from flooding. This project will promote sustainable land use and development techniques aimed at protecting the waterfront, agriculture, and open space. Calfee Zoning was chosen for this project due to its attention to the unique physical landscape of Kent County and the clarity and readability of past zoning code updates.
Vienna, Virginia is a town of 15,687 people in Fairfax County and part of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The town is connected to D.C. via the Orange Line and the Silver Line and has been experiencing significant growth pressures in recent years. This code will foster the existing small-town character of the town, while facilitating growth in an intentional way.
