The Historic Preservation/Zoning Committee provides leadership, education and advocacy to protect the irreplaceable places that tell our community’s story in Dupont Circle. This Committee seeks to support the presence and maintenance of historic buildings and neighborhoods. As a part of our past, these buildings keep our history alive, and help us know who we are. Current efforts include: Dupont Circle Conservancy, and DCCA Historic Medallion Program.


Founded in 1922 in a townhouse at 1767 P Street, to promote and protect the interests of the residents, the Dupont Circle Citizens Association (DCCA) is the premier civic and residential organization in the Dupont Circle area.

DCCA brings neighbors, including residents, businesses and non-profit organizations, together to improve the quality of life in an active and diverse urban neighborhood. It holds membership meetings 9 times each year, which are open to the public, runs the Dupont Circle House Tour, resolves neighborhood issues through its committees, donates to local causes, and incubates innovative projects.
