Lander Castigated for Four Mile Run Pollution from Ashlawn School

Hey Yupette,

In the event you missed last night's School Board meeting, School Board Chair and County Board Candidate James Lander was severely reprimanded for the silt pollution of Four Mile Run from Ashlawn School construction. Latest in a series of environmental foul-ups by APS's Facilities and Operations staff and APS's construction contractors.

Oh, turns out APS will have to raid slush funds to be able to complete Abingdon School's planned renovation and expansion because APS spent so much time and money on boutique parking lots and SUV turn-arounds that the construction costs for the school building significantly increased.

Appears that APS is clueless about Arlington Economic Development's plans to recruit thousands of Millennials for new business start-ups, so it will be interesting how "More Seats for Students" plays out in the future.

Thanks for your blog.

Barbara

Can you blame Abingdon School's neighbors for hiring a land use-planning-zoning attorney?

If James Lander is one of the Democratic nominees for County Board will he have the Sierra Club's usual automatic endorsement?

How about a 55-45 revenue split between APS and the County by 2020?

None of the school "planners" lives anywhere near the schools they are "planning".

NOW, NARAL, and Sierra Club endorsements are charades.

Sierra Clubbers live right on the Bay.

Is it worthwhile complaining to the EPA?

Why bother with site plan conditions, since APS adheres to them only when it's convenient?

APS works with County Planning and Zoning Staff to impose site plan conditions on neighborhoods. If there is some site plan condition that's inconvenient for APS to adhere to they ignore it.

Makes me wonder whether the PR Team at APS will go after a national environmental award.

'Boutique Parking' at Abingdon School will cost taxpayers at least $5 million.

Does the extravagant waste of tax dollars on designer parking lots at Abingdon School constitute "misuse of public funds"?

Check out Item 13 on the County Board's Consent Agenda for May 16th - satellite parking for Ashlawn School.

Lander is more of the status quo. I hope he doesn't win.
