New ‘Missing Middle’ Conversations — “Members of the Arlington County Board are hosting 11 community conversations on Missing Middle Housing. Participants will have the opportunity to learn, listen, reflect, and share perspectives with County Board members and neighbors. Sessions will be offered in person across the County, and virtually, with registration required. Community members are asked to register only to one session.” [Arlington County]

Murder Suspect Arrested in Arlington — “A Virginia man has been charged with second-degree murder and other crimes in the killing Wednesday of a female acquaintance who was found stabbed and “actively on fire” in her Fairfax County apartment, police said Thursday… [Arlington resident Richard Montano, 47] was arrested Wednesday night at an Arlington gas station. O’Carroll said Montano ‘has had very minimal contacts with law enforcement in the past.'” [Washington Post]

New Top Tech Official — “Norron Lee has been named as the County’s next director of the Department of Technology Services and Chief Information Officer for Arlington County… After serving as the Director for the Department of Technology Services and Chief Information Officer for 22 years, Dr. Jack Belcher will be moving to a new role within Arlington County Government as chief technology innovation officer.” [Arlington County]

Pair of Crashes on I-395 — Public safety watcher Dave Statter caught two crashes on camera along the stretch of I-395 near Pentagon City yesterday. One was a single-vehicle crash while the other involved a driver trying to cut across multiple lanes to make it to the ramp to Route 1. [Twitter, Twitter]

Parents to Return to Schools — “After two years in which parents have largely been asked (and in many cases required) to stay out of school buildings and classrooms owing to public-health conditions, Arlington Public Schools leaders say they are hoping to welcome them back for the year that starts later this month. ‘We’re looking forward to bringing that back,’ Superintendent Francisco Dúran told School Board members earlier this month.” [Sun Gazette]

Upcoming: Encanto and Mermaids — Those who have children of a certain age have a couple bangers coming up on the event calendar: a free screening of Encanto tonight outside of the Arlington Mill Community Center and a mermaid-themed event in Crystal City on Wednesday afternoon featuring crafts, games, snow cones and, we’re told, “mermaid photo ops.” [Columbia Pike Partnership, National Landing BID]

State Tax Rebates Coming — “If you owed income taxes to the state of Virginia for 2021, some of that money might be coming back this fall. As part of a bipartisan tax rebate plan approved this year, the state government is preparing to send out payments of up to $250 per tax filer (or up to $500 for couples who file jointly).'” [Virginia Mercury]

It’s Friday — Partly cloudy and pleasant throughout the day. High of 81 and low of 68. Sunrise at 6:21 am and sunset at 8:09 pm. []
