Zimmerman Ignored Planning, Population Data to Fund Pet Projects

Hi Yupette,

Did you know that Arlington County has a full time demographer on County Staff? Did you know that that County's Planning Staff collects a lot of data regarding the effects of increased population and construction on transportation?

Why does "Guru of Gridlock" Chris Zimmerman ignore demographic data that indicate the County's population grew 30,000 over the past 10 years? Why does Zimmerman ignore the construction data that indicate Zimmerman and the County Board approved the construction of 30,000 new parking spaces in Arlington over the past decade?

What are these people, anyway? Elected officials who are supposed to respond to our needs or a bunch of Elitists who respond to the wants of special interests?

Go to arlingtonva.us and look at who showed up the past two evenings to beg for this special interest project and that special interest project. The wealthy elite from 22207.

Remember Arna Valley? Remember Potomac Yards? County Board has acted over the years to ensure Arlington is a neo-apartheid regime.

Local media constantly pushed for gentrification. Why does Scurrilous Scotty McCaffrey get concerned now about the homeless? He trashed, or used Antonelli to trash, anyone who wanted to build housing for the homeless when the County had land to redevelop and available tax revenue.

County Board caved in the the Nimbys who lived a mile from Arna Valley and Potomac Yards. Both were isolated from the rest of Arlington and whatever was constructed in either would have had no affect on Al and Tipper's neighbors.

How xenophobic is Arlington's Elite? Potomac Yards is isolated from Arlington Ridge by the wastewater tratment plant and the Metrobus yard.

See Zimmerman's neighborhood? Every conceivable traffic calming barrier has been installed to keep anyone from driving through.

Never mind Zimmerman. Jay Fisette, and his YuppieCratic followers, are so racist, elitist, and xenophobic that it's scary.

Zimmerman's neighborhood has every conceivable NC upgrade.

How about Arlington's libraries? They are being cut so Zimmerman can continue to construct his trolley folly.

Across the board elected officials have ignored population growth. It's 60 million in the USA since 1990, 1.9 million in Virginia, and 50,000 in Arlington.
