Arlington 2050: Envisioning Tomorrow Together

The Arlington 2050 Initiative was announced by Chair Garvey at the Arlington County Board’s January 2024 Organizational meeting and is a year-long effort to engage neighbors across Arlington on what the County should look like by the year 2050 and what challenges the County, and its residents, must address. Beyond initiating and sustaining a dialogue, this initiative seeks to distill community feedback into 2 to 3 distinct visions of the future, which can serve as the basis or a foundation for long-term strategic planning.
