Recognizing that the pace of development in the 22202 area is expected to surge from mid-2019 onward, and that recent community forums have shown that livability is a primary concern in our neighborhoods, the leadership of Crystal City, Aurora Highlands and Arlington Ridge Civic Associations coordinated to develop a “Livability Framework” (click here to download). 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. It’s a “living document” and we welcome feedback to our email address: [email protected]. It will be a topic of conversation at our September 12 meeting.
