Non-Resident County Staff Approve More A-Town Mayhem


Hey Yupette,

Agenda for next Saturday's County Board meeting is posted on the County's Web site. Hottest item on the Consent Agenda is the use permit renewal for A-Town. Non-Resident County Staff have pre-approved renewal of A-Town's use permit, although the mayhem related to A-Town's operations continues, reduced only by the apparent demise of pub crawls in the B-R corridor.

Since September, Arlington Police have been dispatched 3 times for loud noise complaints at A-Town, dispatched 6 times for public intoxication, dispatched twice for disorderly conduct, and dispatched 5 times for assault-related incidents. The Fire Marshall has responded twice for the restaurant being over-capacity. Nearby residents have repeatedly complained about noise and oveserving of alcohol.

So what does County Staff propose to do? Re-impose the same old laundry list of site plan conditions on A-Town for another 6 months. Oh, BTW, the recently-hired Assistant County Attorney, who's a Falls Church resident and signed the Staff Report, is rumored to be Steve McIssac's replacement as County Attorney when he retires.

Thanks for this blog.

Our lives are completely controlled by non-residents. This proves it.

When will the shooting at A-Town begin? I am surprised that no one has been shot so far.

Why should non-resident county staff care? We're just a big paycheck and great benefits and a good pension.

Does the cost of all the yuptard behavior at A-Town exceed whatever economic benefit the County receives from A-Town? If so, shut A-Town down.

We can't have 'community policing' because the police are constantly responding to everything ranging from assaults to homeless people panhandling in the Ballston-Rosslyn corridor.

I looked at the staff report. Shut down A-Town before people are killed there.

Shut Down A-Town. Someone or some people are going to be shot and killed there. Maybe also bystanders or people living in nearby condos.

Vibrant A-Town perfectly complements the vibrant Ballston Commons Mall.

Assistant County Attorney who approved this is Christine Sanders.

The Trolley Pub should patrol the BR Corridor carrying Urban Hipsters armed with M-4 carbines to defend the St. Patrick's Day Pub Crawl againt Heathen Terrorists.

Isn't it bad enuf that that the alcoholics who had their driver's licenses revoked are patrolling the sidewalks in the B-R corridor on bicycles.
