Zimmerman's Urban Village Jumbotronization Goes to Planning Commission, County Board

Hey, Yupette,

In the event you wondered what's next on Chris Zimmerman's urbanization agenda, it's putting a Jumbotron in your neighborhood. Yep, already went to the Planning Commission on Monday, going to the County Board next week on the consent agenda and in December for approval. The Jumbotrons would be huge, up to 750 square feet, that's 37 feet by 20 feet.

County Planning Staff ran the idea of Jumbotrons in neighborhoods like Shirlington Village past three Arlington residents and received a thumbs up from all three.

What was the Planning Commision to do? They serve at the pleasure of Chris Zimmerman.
