Pike Form Based Urbanization Gathers Momentum

Hi Yupette,

Boss Zimmerman's Form Based Charade for the Pike is gathering momentum. Scheduled for Saturday, March 26th is the Foxcroft Heights gentrification charade, facilitated by Zimmerman's national gentrification specialist, Dover, Kohl, and Associates. Charade will be held at the Sheraton National Hotel, 900 South Orme Street between 1 and 4. (Who is paying for this)?

On Monday, March 28th, a preliminary form based charade will be held at 2100 Clarendon Blvd, between 9 PM and 10 PM regarding the dumb growth redevelopment of the Rosenthal auto dealership site, Columbia Pike and Glebe Road. The proposed development calls for the construction of 350 parking spaces on-site. Duh.

As usual, these charades are produced by county staff who don't live in the County to benefit the County Board's pet REITs and developers. It's all about money, not about us.

School Board Set to Approve Wakefield Recreation-Sports-Education Complex

Hello, Yupette,

Libby Garvey and the School Board are set to approve the new Wakefield Recreation-Sports-Education Complex at tonight's School Board meeting.

So if you want a real high school, rather than a sports-recreation complex with classrooms ringed by trailer classrooms, please attend tonight's School Board meeting and speak up. You can be assured Libby will have her pet 'community leaders' there to rubber stamp the School Board's plans.

Libby Garvey is Anti-Education, Pro-Gentrification


We've reviewed Libby Garvey's tenure on the Arlington School Board and we've concluded that the only thing she should be running for is retirement. Whether it was the near-collapse of Abingdon School (her own neighborhood school) in the late '90's before NCLB and SOL or her focus on recreation and sports today, we've concluded that Libby Garvey is anti-education and pro-gentrification.

We don't need or want to continually spend extravagantly for mediocrity. Surely with all the resources available to the Arlington School System we should see the drop-out rate decreasing rather than increasing. It's obvious that Libby Garvey is aligned with Chris Zimmerman's 'final solution'. Rather than providing housing, education, and other services to households that don't earn at least $100,000 per year they embrace the relocation of everyone lacking significant disposable income to the outer-outer suburbs.

Favola Demanded DHS HQ Relocation

Hi Yupette,

I noticed Chris Zimmerman is suddenly all concerned about Arlington's Department of Human Services Headquarters relocation from Clarendon to Washington Boulevard-Ft. Myer, and its effect on the Pike's low-income families.

In fact, Barbara Fovola DEMANDED that DHS be relocated. Mary Hynes supported Barbara and Jay Fisette went along. Barbara and Mary do not want poor people in the Clarendon-Lyon Village area, something they have not denied. Jay Fisette doesn't like poor people at all, no matter where they live. Zimmerman and Tejada want to 'economically and ethnically cleanse' Columbia Pike. The local media go along - Post, Sun Gazette, News-Press. So do the upscale churches. The DHS move has so far cost Arlington taxpayers $2 million unnecessarily. Zimmerman's ART route change is an interim step before his 'final solution' the removal of the 'mongrel races' from Arlington to 'relocation zones' in the outer-outer suburbs.
