County Board to Approve Parking for 2,000 More Vehicles in 2009?

The County Board approved the construction of more than 4,000 new parking spaces in Arlington last year. So far this year the County Board approved the construction of more than 1,200 new parking spaces, most near Metrorail. Several major projects will come before the County Board late this year, including another hotel near Courthouse and the expansion of American Service Center. County Planning Staff expects the County Board to approve the construction of at least 2,000 new parking spaces this year, most near Metrorail.

Thank Chris Zimmerman - Arlington's Guru of Gridlock.

Limits on parking? Let's have another Planning Charette, pronounced Charade.

Why is it that every building constructed near Metro has to have a 300-500 vehicle parking garage? Smart Growth?

How about the new parking being constructed at the State Department Training Center - National Guard HQ on George Mason Drive? Where is 'Jane Barcroft'? Writing another scurrilous novel that trashes the people who publicly oppose our neighborhood becoming a gridlocked parking lot.

Time to state the obvious: Zimmerman, Fisette, and Favola are racists and elitists. If the NAACP wants to go along with their Yuppie gentrification agenda it just shows how pathetic the NAACP has become over the past 40 years.

Look out, Bernard, Zimmerman might have one of his flunkies start a rumor that you were seen in a restaurant with an attractive young woman, when you were actually out celebrating your 10th wedding anniversary with your wife.

Real out and out racists are the developers who control the County Board.

Every "community leader" is Arlington gets paid off one way or another. Anyone with integrity and who tries to make our future better is smeared with lies and rumors by the Republicratic Establishment.

Yupette, please start a thread about the role of the Arlington Police in the Yupublicrats' total social control and total gentrification.

I spoke with several developers outside the County Board Room about site plans with 300+ parking spaces located near a Metro station. Response was - we would welcome the opportunity to build less parking, doing so would save us money. County planning staff told me that it's the County Board that sets the number of parking spaces for site plans.

Arlington Police? About 1/3 of the cass they respond to are domestics, usually called in by a neighbor, about 1/3 are suspicious minority persons, and about 1/3 involve people who are driving while black or driving while latino.

At least Zimmerman voted for affordable housing in Potomac Yards. Fisette and Favola did not.

Why is it that every Defense Department employee has to drive to work?

Because almost every DOD installation has big parking lots.
