Our Neighborhood

Keeping our neighborhood light, airy, with lots of trees

A number of neighbors are working together to try to stop illegal construction in the neighborhood.  If you are interested,


Compliance with our special Wesley Heights Overlay Zone requires builders to limit the percentage of the lot occupied by a residence and its size as well as its setback from the street. 

Working with American University is important for the neighborhood because the University can be both a very positive force in the neighborhood, but also can have some adverse impacts.  Recently the surrounding neighborhoods/communities have formed a Partnership with the University to address any on-going opportunities/problems and also to help develop the next Campus Plan.
