Regular and Recessed County Board Meetings

The following February the Board reviews the Manager’s proposed budget and has work sessions with Departments and other stakeholders including a Public Hearing for the Budget and Tax Rate. The final Budget is adopted in April.

Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) Public Hearings 

The Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) is a 10-year plan that is one of the most significant planning process for Arlington County and Arlington County Public Schools. This plan identifies the capital needs of the community over a specified period of time.
