Beyond Amazon: Livability
Matt Mattauszek, the Arlington County Crystal City / Pentagon City Planning
Coordinator will provide an update on the status of the proposed development in
the National Landing area, which has the potential to exceed 20 million square
feet of building within the next five years.
The three civic associations primarily impacted by approved and proposed
National Landing development within or close to their borders are the Arlington
Ridge Civic Association, the Aurora Highlands Civic Association, and the Crystal
City Civic Association. In early 2019, they formed the Livability Working Group
that eventually became the Federation’s ad hoc Livability Committee. The
purpose of the group was to study the impacts of development in the National
Landing area on their neighborhoods.
Mike Dowell of the Livability Working Group will present “Livability22202”, a
summary of the Livability Committee’s study of the benefits the new
development as well as the impacts that will need to be mitigated.
Following presentations on development in the National Landing area, there
will be a Q&A session moderated by Eric Cassel, Vice-Chair of the Arlington Civic Federation Board of Directors.
