Arlington County Information and Hearing Schedule:
Arlington County maintains a right of way for a street between 2413 and 2426 Queen Street. Note: The developer could potentially leverage Pierce Street or 24th Street, but asked the County to exercise the Queen Street right of way.
The project requires amending Arlington’s Master Transportation Plan’s Street Map and re-zoning the land behind Queen Street.
This project is at its initial steps with the County and there are three important hearings, which will be advertised in local newspapers after June 16. These include:
Note: This may be listed on the agenda as “Club Manor Estates”.
The Transportation and Planning Commissions will make recommendations to the County Board, who will hold a vote on whether to approve the MTP amendment.
Steps Taken by the Forest Hills Board:
Captured information from the County and developer in our June 5 meeting.
Developed a survey to distribute after the meeting Saturday June 16, to capture neighborhood feedback.
Organized a temporary Queen Street Development Working Group. To participate, please contact Andy Hoffman at Andrea@girl73.com.
Asked our legal counsel to review this proposed project and determine our options.
Next Steps by the Forest Hills Board:
How You Can Help:
Participate in the working group.
Attend the developer information session this Saturday at 10AM at Army Navy Country Club and ask questions.
Complete the survey from the Board (to be distributed next week).
Be on the lookout for the upcoming Arlington County hearing dates/locations and make sure to attend those meetings so your voice can be heard.
