July Newsletter is Out!

The July Newsletter is hot off the presses. A few things to note:

1.  Livabiility Framework:  Be sure to read about the “Livability Framework” that the leadership of Crystal City, Aurora Highlands and Arlington Ridge Civic Associations coordinated to develop.  This document articulates a vision for an integrated, holistic approach to achieving a highly livable community across our diverse neighborhoods and defines a set of livability themes and specific elements.   The goal is to encourage a collaborative engagement among residents, the County, developers, property owners and businesses and other organizations to develop and implement an integrated holistic approach to achieving livability across our community.  This will be the subject of our September 12 meeting with county board members Christian Dorsey and Libby Garvey.

2.  Arlington County Community Meeting on MetPark Phases 6-8: Arlington County will hold an introductory community meeting July 10 from 7-8:30 pm to kick off the review process for the proposed Met Park Phases 6-8 site plan, which is the location for Amazon’s first phase of new development in the County. Interested stakeholders and community members will receive information about the proposed development, planning background, and an explanation of how the review process will work. Staff from various County departments along with the applicant will be available to answer questions.  Location is the Trades Center – Park Operations Building at 2700 S. Taylor St.   check back here for details.   While seating is not limited, RSVP to help in planning.
