Oppose Development in Arlington County

Last month, ASNV sent comments to Arlington County staff (and Board members) on a proposed Bicycle Element to the County’s Master Transportation Plan. You can read the comments here. ASNV forcefully opposed two proposed off-street bike trails that would endanger natural resources in Glencarlyn and Barcroft Parks, including Moses Ball Spring, the associated creek to Long Branch Creek, and the globally significant Magnolia Bog. ASNV also opposed widening or adding lighting to the W&OD and Four Mile Run trails in natural areas of Glencarlyn and Bluemont Parks. The formal comment period on the draft plan is closed. It will be further revised and presented to the Planning Commission and the Transportation Commission, and then it will go before the Arlington County Board. If you are interested, you can assist our advocacy on these issues by writing to members of the Arlington County Board between now and April, when action is anticipated on the Plan.
