ARLnow Weekend Discussion

It’s June 21, which means it’s officially the first day of summer and the longest day of the year!

It’s been a big week for long-term projects in Arlington, with updates to the Rosslyn boathouse project and salary bumps for the Arlington County Board.

For the civically engaged among you, the county announced it will soon hold public meetings on Amazon’s first permanent buildings and code changes to allow the installation of 5G wireless technology. The county is also asking for residents to help test a new online permitting system.

Heading into the weekend, everyone might want to know ACPD is planning to close an intersection to investigate a crash, and Clarendon is planning a power outage.
