Correction: July 2016 County Board Meeting Agenda Highlights

Published on July 11, 2016

Earllier today, we issued a list of highlights  for the upcoming July County Board Meeting. That list included the wrong dates for the Board's consideration of two items:

  • The Board will consider a proposed new option for a Ballston development, (Item No. 54), during its Saturday, July 16 Regular County Board Meeting (not on Tuesday, as initially reported).  The Board will consider amending a site plan to allow the Shooshan Co. the option of developing a previously approved but unbuilt office building at 4040 Wilson Blvd. as a residential-retail building. The proposed development is part of the 5.35-acre Founder's Square project. Four of the planned five buildings on the site have already been built.

  • The Board will consider creating a Community Development Authority at its Tuesday, July 19 Recessed County Board Meeting, (Item No. 56), and not on Wednesday, July 20, as initially reported. The Board will consider creating a Community Development Authority (CDA) for the purpose of issuing bonds to help transform the aging Ballston Common Mall into Ballston Quarter, a dynamic shopping, dining and residential development in the heart of one of Arlington's key urban villages. CDAs, commonly used by Virginia localities to fund public infrastructure investments and create incremental tax revenue growth, are a development tool authorized by state statute. Item No. 56.
