ASF January 13 analysis: Missing Middle Housing Proposal: Impacts on Arlington and Its Comprehensive Plan
The County Board is voting November 11 the "Langston Boulevard" Area Plan" (formerly Plan Langston Blvd). The advertised "vision" will not codify, but it will open the door to new land use and zoning along Langston Blvd. west of Rosslyn to Arlington-East Falls Church (with some parts, i.e. Cherrydale and East Falls Church, subject to separate planning efforts and not included in the planning area for now.) ASF believes the PCP inadequately accounts for adverse fiscal and environmental impacts; omits critically-needed new infrastructure, particularly schools, parks, stormwater detention, and roads (the planning area lies outside Metro corridors), parks. The plan misses the county's affordable housing goals and allows a 40% reduction in the overall percentage of affordable housing in the 3 Areas being redeveloped. So we can expect more gentrification, major traffice, flooding and school and park overcrowding. Virginia controls this highway and has yet to approve transportation changes.
