Book Conversation: Excluded by Richard Kahlenberg
Tuesday, October 3, 7:00-8:30pm
Held at a member's home near Bluemont Park.
Join fellow YIMBYs for a casual discussion of "Excluded: How Snob Zoning, NIMBYism, and Class Bias Build the Walls We Don't See" by Richard Kahlenberg. This investigation centers on the intersection of zoning and school segregation, and highlights the class bias that is at the center of exclusionary land use practices.
You are welcome to attend even if you just listen to a podcast or read an article about the book.
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 9,400 new housing units could be constructed over the next five decades.
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!
