Spring Break

Spring Break

Preservation Arlington is on Spring Break.

Thank you for all your support over the last year. We hope you have enjoyed our posts.

We will continue with our features next week. We are running several different collections of posts:

Preserved & Developed features stories about how development of a site occurred while still positively responding to the historic resources of the site.

Saved focuses on projects where historic resources have not only been saved from destruction but have also witnessed reinvestment and stabilization. The majority of the projects featured will also be locally designated historic districts.

Lost has been a highly discussed topic as it is our monthly summary of homes for which demolition permits have been issued. Once they’re demolished, these homes and the stories embodied within them disappear. This series shows that some of our neighborhoods are seeing much more substantial rates of redevelopment and that our National Register neighborhoods are not immune either.

For Sale features unique or special homes that are indicative of what makes Arlington a great community. The goal is to show a wide range of housing styles, prices and neighborhoods — a cross representation of Arlington.

Upcoming Meetings features important public meetings where historic resources are being discussed. These include the monthly meetings of the Historic Affairs and Landmark Review Board, the Planning Commission, the Planning Commission’s Site Plan Review Subcommittee (SPRC) and other community meetings discussing historic resources in the county.

Other features include Arlington Bookshelf, Planning 101, Historic Districts 101 and Threatened.

We look forward to continuing this dialogue and look forward to your comments both on the blog and on the our Facebook page.
