Residential Permit Parking (LVCA General Meeting Recap)

Residential Permit Parking (LVCA General Meeting Recap)
The January LVCA meeting featured an overview of proposed changes to Arlington’s Residential Permit Parking Program (RPP). Many people know it as “Zone 6 Parking.”

A presentation by LVCA Board Member Andrew Rude, who has been following the RPP review for LVCA. County staff were invited to make a presentation, but declined. Andy summarized the changes the county is considering: some good and some that LVCA Board Members think should be changed. Several members of nearby neighborhood associations, who will also be impacted by RPP changes, attended the meeting. We will be working together on this. The County Board is planning to vote on these changes at its regular meeting in February (tentatively Feb 20).

Members of the LVCA Board and representatives from other Arlington neighborhood associations are meeting to develop a common position on the proposed RPP changes and to communicate with the County Board about the proposed changes.

LVCA Meeting Recap Video: Missing Middle (Nov 9)
Possibly the greatest future challenge facing Lyon Village Residents will be proposals to up-zone much on Lyon Village, now limited to single-family houses, to permit duplexes, triplexes, quads, and denser structures, thus dramatically changing the character of Lyon Village.

Speakers:
● Peter Rousselot from Arlingtonians for Our Sustainable Future made his case agains the Missing Middle Housing Study and up-zoning. (27 minutes)

● Matt de Ferranti, County Board Member explained the Missing Middle Housing Study. (20 minutes)

● Q by John & A by Matt & Peter. (25 minutes)

Missing Middle Housing Study
The Missing Middle Housing Study is expected to run through 2022. It will consider such topics as:
● Up-Zoning: Changing the zoning of areas now limited to single-family houses to permit duplexes, triplexes, quads, and denser structures.
● How up-zoning relates to Arlington’s agenda for accelerated development, growth, and density.
● Impacts of up-zoning, accelerated development, growth and density on Arlington’s infrastructure (public schools, fire stations, storm and freshwater distribution systems), environment, and budget.
