Arlington Neighborhoods Advisory Committee (ArNAC)

The ArNAC (formerly known as the Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee or NCAC) leads the development of neighborhood plans and recommends neighborhood-initiated capital improvements for funding by the County Board. Improvements include sidewalks, street beautification, pedestrian safety projects, street lights, and parks.

ArNAC membership is comprised of representatives from 48 of Arlington County’s 62 civic associations. Each community that participates in the Arlington Neighborhoods Program (ANP) has an ArNAC representative that serves as a liaison with ANP staff.

ArNAC meetings are held the second Thursday of the month from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. (except in August). The meeting format will be hybrid (attendance may be in-person or via electronic communications using Microsoft Teams); virtual (attendance only via electronic communications using Microsoft Teams); or in-person only. Once confirmed, the meeting format, location and/or electronic access information, and agenda will be posted below.
