Mid-Summer Update on Housing Arlington Initiatives

August 7, 2019 PROGRAM NEWS:

Work is well underway on several key Housing Arlington initiatives. Staff has compiled feedback from the May 29 Housing Arlington Kick-Off Event, and is currently reading and evaluating the very strong community response we got to the accompanying online feedback form. With nearly 500 online submissions, we thank all participants for their robust feedback and thoughts, and will be posting our findings soon.

  • Land Use Tools
    • Housing Conservation District staff finalized the HCD Update Report and has engaged with the community throughout the summer.
    • The County Board held a work session on the Housing Conservation District on Sept. 10, 3-5 p.m.
  • Financial Tools
  • Institutional Partnerships
  • Condominium Initiative
    • Staff is working on scheduling a series of workshops for condo owners and HOA Board Members who are interested in good management practices for condominiums. In September we will be collaborating with Alexandria to offer a Saturday morning workshop about Reserve Studies and renovation needs. In October we will offer two classes in conjunction with the Living in Arlington fair on Saturday, October 12 about Fair Housing and Dealing with Mold Issues.
    • Condo Homeowner Associations continue to share management issues and topics of concern and how the County’s Initiative could be helpful to them. If you are a condo manager or a member of a condo HOA and are willing to share your insights and perspective, please contact us: housingarlington@arlingtonva.us.
