  • The Community Facilities Study Committee is developing a list of challenges facing Arlington and alternative strategies to address them. What considerations or challenges are important to you?

    Changing demographic shifts, retirees, school age children
    Lack of engagement with those directly impacted by planning decisions. Need to provide meetings in those communities even if it causes discomfort for those of North Arlington and the aging white population that dominates public meetings.
    Take into consideration the impact on the schools as development continues to be such high density.
    Encourage small business development
