Malis Resigns from Planning Commission — Inta Malis, treasurer of the Arlington County Democratic Committee and a fervent streetcar supporter, has unexpectedly resigned from the county’s Planning Commission. Malis told ARLnow.com that she’s resigning with a year left in her third four-year term in order to join the Board of Zoning Appeals, which “has always held some interest for me as another aspect of land use planning.”
