Citizens Association of Georgetown v. District of Columbia Board of Zoning Adjustment
District of Columbia Court of Appeals
925 A.2d 585 (2007)
After the District of Columbia Court of Appeals issued its opinion in President and Directors of Georgetown College v. District of Columbia Board of Zoning Adjustment, the case was remanded to the Board of Zoning Adjustment (BZA) (defendant) for further proceedings. On remand, the BZA approved Georgetown College’s request to increase its enrollment cap to 6,016, with the allowance that Georgetown determine compliance with the cap by averaging its fall and spring enrollment. The BZA also eliminated certain provisions from the Original Campus Plan that were uncontested by Georgetown. The Citizens Association of Georgetown (CAG) (plaintiff) opposed both the cap increase and the removal of uncontested provisions from the Original Campus Plan. CAG filed a lawsuit contesting the BZA’s decision.
