The Arlington Committee of 100 fosters open and vigorous discussion of issues involving all facets of community life in Arlington. The Committee's monthly forums are open to all and provide a non-partisan setting in which issues of local, regional, and state interest are addressed by experts, with audience participation in lively Q&A sessions.
The Four Mile Run Valley is one of Arlington’s last unplanned areas. Located between Nauck and Shirlington, this area includes Jennie Dean park, industrial businesses, arts groups, charities, a dog park, service amenities, and Four Mile Run. A diverse community working group has been meeting to figure out how to balance different goals and uses for this area. After over two years of challenging—and at times acrimonious—deliberation, the County Board will be deciding on the official policy framework for the Four Mile Run Valley at its meeting on May 19th or 22nd. To learn more about the proposals and various interests for the Four Mile Run Valley, come to the Committee of 100 program on Wednesday, May 9th.
First, we will feature a presentation on the proposal from Chikwe Njoku, Project Coordinator and Division Chief with Arlington Department of Community Planning, Housing & Development. Discussion of the issues from Arlintonians representing different interests in the Four Mile Run Valley:
Each panelist will give a short presentation about their area of interest in the Four Mile Run Valley, and then all speakers will take questions together from attendees.
