Arlington County Board Listens...But Only to Non-Residents

Hi Ms. Yupette:

Thanks for this blog. If you needed any proof that the County Board only listens to non-residents last Saturday's County Board meeting provided plenty. When the County Board wasn't deferring to non-resident county staff (starting with County Manager Barbara Donnellan) it was essentially rubber stamping whatever dumb growth 'planning' the out-of-state REITS concocted with their out-of-state law firms. Commentary by local media who, like the County Board, never met a neighborhood they didn't want in-filled.

Time to end the arrogance, starting with retiring Jay Fisette from the County Board in November. That would send a big signal to Barbara,Terry Holzheimer, Robert Brosnan, and Robert Duffy that their infill urbanization services are no longer needed. Maybe they could spend their retirements in-filling the parks in their own Fairfax County neighborhoods with lighted synthetic surface soccer fields.

Thumbs up to the residents of Arlington Ridge and Williamsburg for wanting to keep their residential neighborhoods residential.

Regards,

Terri

Non-Resident County Staff are the ultimate NIMBYs. Not in my back yard, not in my community, not in my county...build it in Arlington, and we'll do the planning.

You got that right. Same bunch of skanks who came up with the car free diet and then plan in-fill parking garages with 750 parking spaces.

This has a huge racist and elitist component. People like Donnellan do not want members of minority groups playing soccer anywhere near their upscale Fairfax County neighborhoods.

Ditto for Zimmerman, Tejada, and Fisette.

Cops were in and around Dominion Hills (Tejads's neighborhood) for weeks last month following skateboarders and minority group members who were using the skateboard park and the regional park.

Time is overdue for Donnellan to retire and take Holzheimer, Brosnan, and Duffy with her.

All I read, see, or hear out of 2100 Clarendon Boulevard is "County Staff this....County Staff that..."

School Board voted 4-1 last night to keep sending Arlington students to TJHSST, welfare for the wealthy at its worst.
