Bowser moves to limit legal challenges to city development

Activists seeking to thwart the breakneck speed of development across the District have turned with greater frequency to the city's highest court, filing legal challenges that have delayed more than two dozen projects in the past two years and driven up their costs.

Now the Bowser administration wants to curtail those challenges, proposing to amend District policies in ways to reduce those avenues for protest.
