Arlington County is in the process of re-planning three major areas in the County: Four Mile Run, the Lee Highway Corridor, and the commercial properties along Washington Blvd. at Kirkwood Road.
The Four Mile Run planning effort has been underway this Fall and includes regular Working Group meetings and a County-led consultant team to refine the vision for the industrial and park/County-owned properties in the area. The next meetings will be held December 21, 2016 and January 3, 2017.
The 5-mile Lee Highway Corridor Study has just begun with a kick-off meeting in late November. The multi-year planning effort will include visioning, land use changes and focus on transitioning to established, surrounding residential neighborhoods. Stay-tuned, the planning effort begins in early 2017.
The Washington Blvd./Kirkwood Road Special General Land Use Study Plus is underway with a study of the comprehensive plan (GLUP) designations for a large area of underutilized land located one block from Clarendon. The Long Range Planning Committee will hear Staff’s massing recommendations at a meeting December 20, 2016. The study is to culminate in May 2017 with recommendations to change the GLUP for all commercially-zoned properties, including the YMCA property, along Washington Blvd. from Kirkwood Road to N. Lincoln Street.
