Key Boulevard Water Main Replacement
County staff will brief us on replacement of the water main along Key Blvd from Jackson to Danville and the block of Herndon north of Key. The existing, aging water main was built in 1927 and has had numerous breaks in the past few years. The new larger-diameter and more-durable watermain will improve fire flow capacity and better support demand in the neighborhood. Construction is expected begin in the Spring and is expected to take a year and a half. There will be detours, parking restrictions, and unavoidable noise (between 9AM & 4PM). Water service may be disrupted for up to two hours. when the new main is connected to the water system disruptions may last up to eight hours. Advance notice will be given to residents before any planned water shut-offs. County Board Agenda Item

Zoning “Bonus” Heights in LV
In the second part of the meeting county staff will provide an overview of a proposal to award 60 extra feet of height for new buildings that include affordable units. The proposal is ostensibly for projects that are 100% “affordable,” but gives the County Board leeway offer extra height even if a project isn’t completely affordable. The proposal applies to properties zoned RA14-26, RA8-18, and RA6-15. There are several RA8-18 districts in Lyon Village (shown on map in yellow). This could potentially allow 10 story buildings to be built next to single-family homes. The proposal is supported by County Staff, the County Manager, and the Arlington Partnership for Affordable Housing. The county board has advertised a hearing on April 17 to approve this change.

March Meeting Recap: Clarendon Development Plans

March Meeting Recap: Clarendon Development Plans
County planner Brett Wallace, who is project manager for the Clarendon Sector Plan (CSP) Update, reviewed the current status of work on the update. The plan has shaped the physical development of Clarendon over the past 14 years, including private development projects and major public investments like the Clarendon Circle transportation improvements. Several large developments are currently proposed in Clarendon, including redevelopment of key sites south of Washington Boulevard, reconfiguration or relocation of Fire Station 4, several high-rise residential buildings, and a convention hotel. Changes to the plan may have a significant impact on traffic, parking, trash, and safety in LV.

CSP Presentation Slides

CSP Presentation Audio


Q&A
How does the Sector Plan update relate to the County’s “Missing Middle” initiative and proposed changes to zoning?


Are you discussing moving Wilson Boulevard a few feet South into the Silver Diner block between Clarendon Circle and 10th Street N, so as to provide more sidewalk space on the North side of the street, where Northside Social is currently located?


It is widely acknowledged that there are limits to growth. Will you consider limits on Clarendon’s infrastructure? Streets and sidewalks in Clarendon are narrower than Rosslyn or Ballston. Is there a limit to what can be reasonably built in this area?


How will the proposed projects taper down to the residential neighborhoods — particularly on the 10th Street side where you are very close to Ashton Heights and Lyon Park?


Are any parcels north of Wilson and Washington Blvds. in play in your study? Parking in Clarendon is tight and spills over into Lyon Village. Are any thoughts be given to increasing the parking requirement — the County seems to be reducing it to about 0.46 spaces per unit in residential buildings.


How much more density has been added above the current density under the 2006 Sector Plan in the four private project proposals? Their presentations don’t seem to list the original density nor the additional square footage they have requested.


What is a modified step back?


On the St. Charles side of Washington Blvd. opposite the Bromptons, the proposal is to keep the edge of the site at 55 feet and then taper up more rapidly than currently planned. Yet this is the lowest part of the site, and elevations are typically measured based on the whole site. What would be the likely height at that point with an average site elevation of 70 feet or more?


Is there not enough parking in Clarendon, or is it just a matter of folks not wanting to use the public parking garages?


A convention hotel is proposed for the Silver Diner site. The transportation needs for a hotel are very different than those for a residential building or office building. How would you keep traffic from cars, shuttle vans, and tour buses from spilling out into the neighborhoods?


How many of these sites will include residential that will cater to families? where will those children go?


Dittmar is currently proposing to remove seventy-five homes from our housing supply by converting them to short/medium-term rentals across three of their buildings (not in the subject area, but nearby) in a “minor” site plan amendment. What is the County doing (through this sector plan amendment or anywhere else) to compensate the community for the removal of those 75 homes, especially in the context of our housing shortage?


Will the fire department station and office building remain? Will their current activities continue? Will any of it need to be moved?


When will the Joyce Motors site be bringing something to the Board?

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.

The County Board is planning to vote on these changes at its regular meeting in February (tentatively Feb 20).

RPP Presentation: Jan 11 2021 by Andy Rude (PDF)

Boundary Update
The meeting will start with a brief update on the current status of the ever-changing boundary process.

The initial (Oct 5) boundary proposal redrew school boundaries across Arlington. The proposal divided LV students between Science Focus and the new Key school. New boundaries were proposed for Science Focus and Taylor. Parents across Arlington were not happy.

After community-wide feedback, an updated proposal was presented on Nov 5. Under the Nov 5 proposal LV will be split among 3 schools: Science Focus, Key, and Taylor. Some LV parents are not happy.
