ARCA Membership Meeting Minutes



WHEREAS, the Arlington Ridge Civic Association (ARCA) unanimously adopted a Resolution on September 17, 2015, calling upon Arlington County to provide for, and direct the conduct of a comprehensive study by an independent, reputable third party to determine the capacity of 22202’s infrastructure (e.g., schools, transportation) to accommodate population growth (residential, commuter and visitor) without compromising the area’s livability (and rent- ability) in light of prospective traffic and transit congestion, and adequacy of school and public safety facilities in the event of an eventual build-out of all development already authorized and/or envisioned by County Sector, Phased Development and individual Site Plans; and

WHEREAS, that Resolution was predicated on a number of facts, circumstances and conditions then extant which continue to exist to this day and are incorporated by reference herein; and

WHEREAS, the recent decision by Amazon to accept the County’s solicitation that it locate a second headquarters employing 25,000 workers in 22202 in the coming years (possibly also including Potomac Yards) has added urgency to that Resolution and the importance of its delivery in order to enable smart and manageable growth in the area in light of its unique geography and the capacity of its existing infrastructure and that which could reasonably be added in future years; therefore

BE IT RESOLVED for the reasons set forth herein, ARCA embraces and renews its herein-referenced RESOLUTION adopted in 2015 which the County has yet to act upon.
