$219M in Arlington Bond Referendums Up for Vote

$219M in Arlington Bond Referendums Up for Vote

Hi there for another Friday Frivolity post!

If the court approves, coming up this Nov. 4th, registered Arlington voters will be able to help decide, by casting a ballot, on four packages:

– $13M for local parks and recreation, which includes $2m for land acquisition

– $39.9M for community infrastructure, which includes Arlington’s Neighborhood Conservation Program

– $60.24M for Metro and transportation (esp. notable is the $500,000 included for the EFC area)

– $105.78M for education, which would fund the entire package that the school board has requested

See you at the polls! No bond package has been turned down by voters in 30 years. Thoughts for this time around?



The Silver Line Set to Open Saturday, July 26

The Silver Line Set to Open Saturday, July 26

On Saturday, July, 26th, the much anticipated Silver Line of Metro is set to open. The first phase opens the Silver Line between East Falls Church Metro in Arlington and Reston; a second phase, extending the line to Route 772 in Loudon County, is slated to debut in 2018.

Some questions:

– Will the rail extension create a demand in the market for what it needs?

– What direction will new building take, esp in Tyson’s Corner?

– Will there be numerous opportunities for small businesses to get in the act, along with big box and other stores?

Comments? Thoughts?
