Foreign Missions

Pursuant to the Foreign Mission Act of 1982, the location, expansion, or replacement of a chancery in certain mixed-use areas of the city is subject to review by the BZA.

Foreign Mission cases are heard before the Foreign Mission Board of Zoning Adjustment (FMBZA), which is comprised of the members of the BZA with the Executive Director of the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) sitting instead of his/her designee.
