Year Around Shelter for the Homeless Still "Under Consideration"
The Arlington Yuppie Board again refused to commit to year-around housing for Arlington's growing homeless population at yesterday's CB meeting. Arlington's population has grown by about 22,000 (11%) over the past decade and many who were added to Arlington's population since 2000 are of households that are well under the poverty level. Meanwhile, funds will be stripped from essential services in the 2011 budget to fund the County Board's pet projects and pet special interests.
