CPHD 'Urban Designers' to 'Clarendon' Westover

Hey Yupette,

Don't know if you've been keeping up with what  Community Planning, Housing, and Development is up to but Arlington's Planning Division has a new Urban Design and Research Section and its Planning Supervisor, Kris Krider, gave a presentation about his group's agenda to the Planning Commission last night.

Besides making over Rosslyn into 'Neverland on the Potomac' to suit the tastes of Jay Fisette, the Urban Design Section is moving on Smart Growth Urbanization of Courthouse, including a huge new County Office Building.

After that, guess where they're going to inflict 'Smart Growth' next? If you guessed Westover you're correct. Same County Board Members who want streetcars on the Pike and in Crystal City want Westover to look more like 'vibrant' Clarendon. The huge CPHD bureaucracy is more than willing to oblige - after all neighborhood-by-neighborhood urbanization is a win-win, for their lifetime job security and the REITs they serve.

So look for a CPHD 'planning charette' coming to Westover soon, most likely as soon as the Courthouse charettes are completed.

Alan Howze and Patrick 'Trolley Pub' Hope are trolling for votes from the Urban Hipsters who want Westover added to the Pub Crawl Zone after Courthouse is added.

Mary Hynes has had hundreds of complaints about Clarendon pub crawls from her Clarendon and Lyon Village neighbors, which she ignores.

Guess what happens when CPHD hires Urban Hipsters as Urban Designers?

How about a Mary Hynes Rosslyn-to-Ballston Mega Pub Crawl this Fourth of July (3 day weekend this year)?

Proceeds to fund the 2015 Committee of 100 Gala.

B-R pub crawlers will be falling on their faces tripping over streetcar tracks if Jay Fisette has his way.

Should be named the "Mary Hynes 5K Pub Crawl".
