What challenges and opportunities do you see for Lee Highway?
Lee Highway is changing. The community is shaping how. After three years of grassroots background work, the Lee Highway Alliance is partnering with Arlington County to figure out what the community's vision will look like.
Lee Highway is the main street through north Arlington. While other Arlington streets like Wilson Boulevad and Columbia Pike have grown more urban, Lee Highway has remained car-oriented. But the landscape is starting to change, and there's a big effort underway to ensure residents play a role in shaping the details.
The Lee Highway Alliance represents 18 of north Arlington's civic associations and community groups. Between 2012 and 2014, they connected with hundreds of residents, businesses and property owners to organize walking tours and monthly forums. In the fall of 2014, they hosted five community meetings along the corridor to raise broader aware ness and hear the local perspective on Lee Highway's strengths and weaknesses.
LHA's grassroots efforts have earned significant County support and in the fall of 2015, the County sponsored a four-day charrette, led by design consultants Dover, Kohl & Partners, to expand community engagement and develop the community's vision for the corridor. The goal is to create a shared vision with perspectives on land use, location of activity nodes, transportation, the public realm and economic development.
The feedback collected from this virtual forum will contribute to that vision and accompanying final report. The County's next steps will be informed by the outcomes of the charrette.
