Help us plan for the future of Arlington’s natural resources!

We want to hear from you!

RSVP and join our virtual open house on September 29 at 7 p.m. to learn about the Forestry and Natural Resources Plan and provide your input.

What is the Forestry and Natural Resources Plan? 

Good question. Arlington is developing a Forestry and Natural Resources Plan that will be the blueprint for stewarding our natural resources in the coming years. This virtual open house is open to everyone to learn about the draft plan, hear what feedback others in our community have provided so far, and offer your input. There will be 4 breakout rooms focusing on the following topics:

Breakout 1 — Working with the Community
Breakout 2 — Development and Natural Resources
Breakout 3 — Climate Resiliency
Breakout 4 — Clarifying Questions on the Draft and Process

The plan is an update to the 2004 Urban Forest Master Plan, the 2010 Natural Resources Management Plan and addresses many topics including: impacts and opportunities related to Arlington’s tree canopy, natural lands, urban development, wildlife, recreation, public education and stewardship among others.

We’d like to know:

  • If you think the plan’s vision statement and strategic directions are on target
  • Which action steps the County should focus on to support its forests and natural resources
  • Any other feedback you have about the plan

Lastly, please share your feedback in this online engagement form by October 3.
