Tomorrow is the last day to share comments about the Affordable Housing Master Plan (AHMP)!

The County conducted a five-year review of the AHMP, which is a policy framework and vision to meet affordable housing needs through 2040. We are now seeking your feedback to help the County focus on pertinent needs and prioritize implementation steps.

All community members are invited to participate in this online feedback opportunity.

Historic Preservation – Colonial Village

In this clip from Arlington’s Nov. 2020 Historic Preservation panel discussion, Eric Nicoll, a resident of Colonial Village Local Historic District, describes working with the County’s Historic Preservation Program to manage change in his neighborhood. What are some historic preservation activities going on in YOUR neighborhood?

And/or, looking beyond architecture and physical places, what stories from your neighborhood or the County's history do you want to ensure are protected and shared? (e.g., the local brickmaking industry in the 19th and 20th centuries or the 1960 lunch counter sit-ins)

On Saturday, the Arlington County Board approved Greystar Real Estate Partners’ plan to redevelop seven parcels that make up the Courthouse Landmark Block with a 423-unit apartment building. The developer has committed to providing extensive community benefits.

The project will demolish the site’s seven commercial buildings while preserving the facades of the existing Investment Building and First Federal Savings and Loan Building, listed on the County’s Historic Resources Inventory. The 20-story apartment building will feature ground-floor retail and an underground parking garage. The nearly one-acre site is bounded by 15th Street North, Clarendon Boulevard, North Courthouse Road, and North Uhle Street.

On this day in Arlington history March 16, 1920: Alexandria County was officially renamed Arlington County. In 1846 the US government retroceded the Virginia part of DC back to Virginia and it became Alexandria County. But in 1870 Alexandria City voted to become a separate city outside of county jurisdiction. Alexandria County—the rural part—and Alexandria City—the more thickly settled part--existed side by side.

The area population grew and confusion ensued between Alexandria County and Alexandria City; mail was improperly addressed and public services had a hard time deciding where people were really located. Finally, the straw that broke the camel’s back was when a lot of people missed out on seeing a lavish World War I parade in 1919 that welcomed home returning troops. They went to the Alexandria City courthouse, not the Alexandria County courthouse where the parade was actually held.

Several names were proposed, including George Washington, Arlington, Pocahontas, and Alcova–using the first two letters of Alexandria County, VA. You know what name was selected.

Delegate Charles T. Jesse introduced legislation in January 1920 to change the name to Arlington. It passed and the new name took effect on March 16, 1920.

Historic Preservation as Change Management

In this clip (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8xuZ36RIlU&feature=youtu.be) from the Nov. 2020 virtual panel discussion that launched the first update to Arlington’s Historic Preservation Master Plan since its adoption in 2006, preservationist Jackie Barton describes historic preservation as change management. The effort is not to prevent all change, but to preserve the stories, traditions, and other cultural elements—material and immaterial—that define and knit together a community. Do you agree?

What stories, places, traditions, characteristics, etc. define Arlington for you, or build community in your neighborhood? What are some ways that the Historic Preservation Program can help better manage change in a rapidly changing Arlington?

I have a question about new apartments. In my neighborhood of single-family homes we have many of these two and three-unit buildings. They fit well in the community and can provide a more affordable option for those who want to live closer to work. With many old single-family housing stock being replaced with new construction could such buildings like these be build on those lots? If not, could we change that policy?
Great conversation on Choose to be Curious on "Radio Arlington" WERA 96.7 FM today with Arlington County planner and demographer Elizabeth Hardy on the role curiosity plays in her work - and why participating in Census 2020 is so important.
I guess there needs to be more "planning" in regards to BZA meetings. Tonight's was pretty much a disaster.
