Missing Middle Housing Initiative

Arlington could legalize duplexes, townhomes, and small multiplexes in all residential neighborhoods by the end of the year. County Board members need to hear from you! Join us at one of the events listed here, or the "Recurring" opportunities below.

The Planning Commission is a citizen advisory group that will give specific recommendations for how flexible and expansive Missing Middle housing should be if the Board adopts to proposal. Sign up to give public testimony.

This is the final vote. The County Board needs to hear from residents who support diverse, sustainable, and attainable homes in ALL Arlington neighborhoods. Your public testimony will help this policy succeed for coming generations!


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.

The Arlington County Board needs to hear why you support Missing Middle housing, whether you live in Arlington, were priced out, or genuinely want to live there one day. This email tool has been updated with our recommendations for the zoning ordinance draft changes. You can send an email even if you sent one previously.

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.

Stay tuned for the updated Concept Plan.
