Have you noticed leaf discoloration and wilt on your trees? Do you want to learn how to protect mature trees on your property and in your neighborhood? If so, we can help!

Urban Forestry and Historic Preservation Program staff partnered to create an informational video so that you can learn about combating oak decline and preserving trees on your property. The video includes a brief presentation on the history of the development of Arlington and an in-depth discussion on tree care in the County's historic districts.

Neighborhood College applications are now open through August 28! This free civic leadership development program for Arlingtonians that helps participants become more effective community activists and leaders.

Since it's inception in 2000, nearly 400 Arlingtonians have graduated from the program, and many have gone on to become neighborhood leaders, members of advisory groups and commissions, officers in their civic associations, County Board members, volunteers at nonprofit organizations, local activists and more.

The program seeks current and emerging grassroots neighborhood leaders who want to contribute to improving their communities, are interested in addressing local issues, and are willing to devote time and energy to community activities.

On Saturday, the County Board has approved WETA’s plan to expand its Shirlington headquarters and an incentive grant to will keep the public television station in Arlington for at least another 5 years.

“WETA was born in Arlington,” Arlington County Board Chair Libby Garvey said. “Its headquarters lies on Campbell Avenue, named for Elizabeth Campbell, an educator and activist who worked tirelessly to create a public television station here that was educational and good for children. She then guided it for four decades. WETA is a big part of Shirlington’s success and an important part of our community. I’m thrilled that this respected educational and cultural institution, and its 292 jobs, will be staying in Arlington for years to come.”

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.
