It may have been a short week with the Labor Day holiday, but plenty happened in Arlington County.

In stories you may have missed, fall campaign season kicked off on Tuesday with a candidate forum for the three County Board candidates and a debate between Del. Alfonso Lopez and challenger Adam Roosevelt.

Arlington County’s public libraries are celebrating “Cosplay Month” for the first time this month, while work is complete to expand the Barcroft Sports & Fitness Center’s gymnastics facilities.

And from today in local transportation news, Metro wants your feedback on various changes to local bus routes, and the Planning Commission sided with Crystal City residents in its discussions over the neighborhood’s new Virginia Railway Express station.

These were our five most-read articles this week:

  1. BREAKING: IOTA Club Closing This Month
  2. Arlington County Pursuing Amazon’s New Headquarters
  3. Wilson Hardware in Clarendon to Open Tomorrow
  4. County Board Releases Statement on DACA Decision
  5. Protests Greet Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on GMU’s Arlington Campus

And these received the most comments:

  1. County Board Releases Statement on DACA Decision
  2. Morning Notes (September 5)
  3. March Against White Supremacy Will Rally in Rosslyn This Afternoon
  4. Trump’s Decision to End DACA Program Criticized By Local Leaders
  5. Arlington GOP Criticizes County Board’s Response to DACA Decision

As a reminder, the Arlington Police, Fire & Sheriff Memorial 9/11 5K race is set for tomorrow, with road closures in effect around the Pentagon and Pentagon City that afternoon and evening.

Feel free to discuss anything of local interest in the comments below. Have a great weekend!
