Arlington County recently released the Preliminary Concept Plan for the Plan Langston Boulevard initiative. Think of the Preliminary Concept Plan as the first comprehensive rough draft of the plan. The County has scheduled numerous in-person and virtual information sessions. The Langston Boulevard Alliance is also organizing walking tours. These events are great opportunities to learn about the Plan and express support for it. The Plan Langston website also allows written feedback.
Background on Plan Langston Boulevard
For those needing a quick catch up, 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. A great one page summary of the plan is here.
