support affordable housing!
Melwood, a longstanding nonprofit in Arlington that provides jobs, employment training services, and community support for adults with disabilities, owns a building on 23rd Street near Crystal City. They would like to redevelop the building to add ~100 units of Committed Affordable Housing, with about 25% set aside for residents with disabilities. Let's help them make this happen!
What We're Watching...
Plan Langston Blvd
The Langston Blvd Area Plan passed the County Board. Now property owners have more opportunity to add housing and improve the streetscape as they redevelop their properties.
County Board Democratic Primary
Maureen Coffey wins one of the Democratic endorsements!
Thank you to everyone who canvassed, phone banked, texted, talked to friends, and took time to vote. We are thrilled that one of our endorsed candidates claimed one of the two seats and will be on the November ballot.
Maureen understands firsthand Arlington's housing crisis, and if elected in the November General Election she will be the first renter Board.
Missing Middle Housing
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!
