County Board Approves Neighborhood Conservation Funding

County Board Approves Neighborhood Conservation Funding

The Arlington County Board unanimously approved more than $2.5 million in funding for four Neighborhood Conservation projects on Sept. 20. The approved projects include street improvements, pedestrian safety and two park improvements. The projects, suggested by residents and endorsed by civic associations, are qualified by staff, then evaluated by the Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee (NCAC) before coming to the County Board for approval. The NCAC considered 26 projects at its June 12 meeting and recommended four of them to the County Board for funding.

The approved projects are funded by the voter-approved 2012 Neighborhood Conservation Bond. This is the fourth and final funding from the bond, which totaled $11 million. The four approved projects are:

  • $608,749 for Donaldson Run Pedestrian Safety Project – Vacation Lane from N. Utah Street to N. Stuart Street,

  • $756,581 for Arlington East Falls Church Street Improvement – N. Quintana Street from Washington Boulevard to 19th Street North,

  • $798,845 for Ballston Virginia Square Park Improvement – Oakland Park at 3701 Wilson Boulevard,

  • $376,000 for Fairlington/Shirlington Park Improvement – Lucky Run Stream at Four Mile Run from S. Walter Reed Drive to Arlington Mill Drive.
