Andrew Trueblood by DC Office of Planning.

In her second inaugural address, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser set a goal of adding 36,000 new housing units in the District by 2025. DC is working on updating the Comprehensive Plan, the document that guides growth and change throughout the District. Responsibility for these significant goals falls on Andrew Trueblood, nominated by Bowser to head the DC Office of Planning.

Trueblood has been an advocate for equitable urbanism since long before he joined the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development in 2013. As he takes on his new role with the Office of Planning, Acting Director Trueblood wants to upgrade the conversation about growth, development, and neighborhood character.
