MdF Fixes to Nix Six Plexes? — “Arlington County Board member Matt de Ferranti says he is opposed to including eight-plexes as part of plans to eliminate single-family zoning across much of the county, and is still up in the air on whether six-plexes should be included… De Ferranti’s is the lone County Board seat on the Nov. 8 ballot, and he is hoping to retain it for a second term.” [Sun Gazette]

Early AM Fight in Crystal City — “500 block of 23rd Street S. At approximately 2:45 a.m. on September 25, police were dispatched to the report of a fight in progress. Upon arrival, officers located the male victim who was transported to an area hospital for treatment of injuries considered serious but non-life threatening. The investigation determined the victim and an unknown male suspect had been involved in a verbal dispute that escalated into a physical altercation. The suspect fled the scene on foot prior to police arrival.” [ACPD]

Student Walkouts Planned Today — “Students at nearly 100 schools across Virginia are planning to walk out of class Tuesday in response to Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s proposed policies that would change how schools in the commonwealth treat transgender students. The student-run Pride Liberation Project is organizing the walk-outs on Tuesday. A list of participating schools shows several high schools in Arlington, Loudoun, Fairfax, Prince William Stafford and Spotsylvania Counties.” [WUSA 9]

W-L Whomps Winless Wakefield — “Washington-Liberty (2-3, 2-0) led 33-0 at halftime, eventually winning, 39-0, over winless Wakefield (0-5, 0-1) in the Liberty District clash. The victory was the first for W-L against Wakefield since the 2014 season, snapping a five-game losing streak to the Warriors.” [Sun Gazette]

Baltimore Also Eyes Zoning Changes — “A new proposal before the Baltimore City Council could dramatically rewrite the city’s building regulations, banning single-family zoning policies that advocates argue have driven housing scarcity and more than a century of segregation. Dubbed the Abundant Housing Act, the proposal follows legislation recently introduced or adopted by numerous local governments around the country and would open residentially-zoned districts across Baltimore to multi-unit housing — a tool supporters say would cut housing costs and increase residential density in neighborhoods with quality housing and access to jobs, amenities or transportation.” [Baltimore Banner]

It’s Tuesday — Partly cloudy throughout the day. High of 69 and low of 55. Sunrise at 7:02 am and sunset at 6:59 pm. []
