On Thursday, April 7, 2011, 56 people came to the Shirlington library to attend an open house on "Parking in the Village at Shirlington," sponsored by Arlington County. Of the attendees 33 were residents, and 23 represented Shirlington Village businesses. The four-hour open house was split between one afternoon session and one in the evening. The afternoon session drew 39 people, with 17 attending in the evening.
There were 17 presentation boards around the room, describing attributes of Shirlington and its parking. Terry Holzheimer, director of economic development for Arlington County, and Dennis Leach, director of transportation, made brief presentations. Holzheimer emphasized that Shirlington has been an overwhelming economic success story for Arlington County, generating $35 million each year in sales, meals and hotel revenues. Leach noted the large investment that has been made by Arlington County over the past decade in transportation infrastructure for Shirlington: the donation of 2.5 acres of land to allow Shirlington's expansion, the new streets, sidewalks, and traffic lights, and the transit center.
