Arlington Unveils New Long-Range Planning Effort for Rosslyn
Realize Rosslyn announced Saturday.
Arlington County unveiled Realize Rosslyn on Saturday, an effort to fine-tune the long-range plan for the bustling urban village.
Realize Rosslyn "strives to ensure that voices in Rosslyn and across Arlington join the conversation on how to transform this 1960s car-centric area to one of our region’s great urban centers. The planning effort will refine the community vision for Rosslyn and create a planning framework that ensures a vibrant mix of housing, retail, office, and public space in the area," according to a news release.
The public will be asked to contribute their ideas, concerns and aspirations through a series of public forums, focus group meetings and a virtual town hall, the release states.
From the discussion, the county hopes to create an enhanced urban design framework; refine and improve transpiration options; formulate recommendations for a building heights strategy; and develop more cohesive, functional parks and open spaces, the release states.
Realize Rosslyn kicks off at 7 p.m. Dec. 3 at the Artisphere, 1101 Wilson Blvd.
