The 2023 Arlington County Board primary will select two candidates. We need candidates who will support more housing of all types, in all parts of the County.

YIMBYs of NoVA are proud to endorse Maureen Coffey, Julius D. "JD" Spain, Sr., and Jonathan Dromgoole.

Learn more about how you can support these housing champions!

Saturday, June 10, 12:00-3:00pm

Help us spread the word about the pro-housing, pro-transit, pro-safe streets candidates for Arlington County Board. We will have tables at Walter Reed Community Center and Court House Plaza, and we will have groups of people on bike to spread the word at a slow, fun pace.

Plan Langston Boulevard is the County’s planning process to transform the Boulevard (US 29) from an auto-centric road into a Green Main Street that increases housing options, walkability, and community amenities. If the plan is implemented, about 8,400 new housing units could be constructed over the next five decades.  

Read the results of the 2022 Engagement process: the majority support for MORE HOUSING! Thank you to everyone who completed the online survey.


Each Monday, a member of the Arlington County Board holds a virtual session to meet one-on-one (or in small groups) with constituents. Each Virtual Open Door Monday runs 7-9pm, but you do not have to stay for the entire time. 

Missing Middle Housing

We won!

Thanks to the work of YIMBYs and our allies, Arlington will allow homes with up to 6 units on nearly every lot, in all neighborhoods! 

Thank you to everyone who spoke out in support!
