Public Space Committee Meetings

Since Mayor Muriel Bowser adjusted the District of Columbia’s operating status in response to coronavirus (COVID-19), all non-essential agency events, gatherings and meetings are postponed until further notice. Please check back with us toward the end of June for further updates. Visit coronavirus.dc.gov for more. 

The Public Space Committee is a citywide body that meets monthly to review and render decisions on a variety of types of permit applications for the use and occupancy of the public right of way that do not fall within the regular permitting process such as sidewalk cafes; over-height retaining walls; over-height fences; and security bollards. The specific dates, times and locations of these meetings are listed below. The committee is staffed by the District Department of Transportation, the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, the Office of Planning and the Secretary of the District of Columbia.

For additional information about the Public Space Committee, or to electronically receive Public Space Committee notices, please send your request to [email protected].
