A. INTRODUCTION National, Capital Planning Commission October, 1965 In the preparation by the agency of plans-and programs in preliminary Section 5(a) of the National Capital Planning Act of 1952, as amended, provides that "each Federal and District of Columbia agency prior to the. preparation of construction plans originated by such agency for proposed developments and projects or to commitments for the acquisition of land, to be paid for in whole or in part from Federal or District funds, shall advise and consult with the Commission and successive stages which affect the plan and the development of the Rational Capital." These criteria are intended to be-used in connection with both civilian and military installations and facilities within the National .Capital Region (as defined. by 'Section l.b. of the 1952 Act). It is ? recognized that these criteria and standards may not be wholly appropriate or applicable to'each and every master (or development plan)submitted ? for the review of the Commission. In such cases, as required, the Director of the Commission's staff ray modify or waive portions of these . criteria. .
