Morning Poll: Do You Agree With the Streetcar Decision?

Columbia Pike streetcar renderingAfter years of planning, community meetings and debate, Arlington’s planned Columbia Pike and Crystal City streetcar system was scuttled yesterday following a somber press conference and brief vote.

County Board Chair and streetcar supporter Jay Fisette said the voters had spoken in their election of streetcar opponent John Vihstadt, and “political realities” meant that the streetcar project must be derailed.

Do you agree with the decision?
