Candidates Compete on Missing Middle — “Clement — who declined to state her age — lives in the exact type of housing that might be legalized across Arlington under the framework: She rents a one-bedroom in an eightplex in Westover. The software developer said she would only support adding density along transit corridors, citing concerns about how missing middle housing will jeopardize Arlington’s tree canopy and strain county infrastructure.” [Washington Post]

‘Missing Middle’ Fight in Raleigh, N.C. — “A stately home, built almost a century ago, is set to be knocked down for new construction. The news is incensing nearby homeowners who feel it’s being developed under a guise… 17 high-end townhomes are being proposed on the near 2-and-a-half acre property… ‘Seventeen times $2 million, is not going to meet the need that we have for high-density properties, high-density living. It’s not going to solve a problem that we have,’ said Pitler.” [ABC 11]

Snow Days Are Back — “In case you thought past experience with remote learning – month after month after month of it for Arlington students during COVID lockdowns – would allow school leaders to keep classes going despite the wrath of Mother Nature, think again. Arlington Public Schools will be able to use up to seven days’ worth of instructional time as snow days before reverting to a ‘virtual’ setting this winter, Superintendent Francisco Durán told School Board members on Oct. 27.” [Sun Gazette]

No Elementary Boundary Changes — “Give thanks for small favors: There will be no boundary-change process for Arlington’s elementary schools this fall, as had been planned. ‘There is not a need,’ Superintendent Francisco Durán told School Board members on Oct. 27, calling the current enrollment levels at most elementary schools ‘manageable at this time.'” [Sun Gazette]

Dulles Metro Opening Mid-Month — “Phase two of the Silver Line will officially open on Tuesday, Nov. 15, Metro announced today. The long-delayed, 11.4-mile extension will bring six stations from Reston through Loudoun County. An opening date has been anticipated for months.” [FFXnow]

It’s Tuesday — Cloudy in the morning, then becoming partly cloudy. High of 69 and low of 57. Sunrise at 7:37 am and sunset at 6:09 pm. []
