Developments of Regional Impact (DRI's)
Developments of Regional Impact (DRIs) are large-scale developments that may possibly have effects outside the jurisdiction in which they are located. The DRI review process is designed to inform neighboring jurisdictions and various State agencies about these projects so they can offer comments and prepare for any possible impacts. The process does not usurp local autonomy as the DRI findings are purely advisory*, however, the process does allow neighboring governments, area service providers, and the State to better understand development trends and alert the host jurisdiction about potential concerns.
To begin filing a DRI download a copy of our DRI Information and Process form and then follow the links to DCA’s online site for DRIs.
