** Engagement Opportunity: County Releases the Preliminary Concept Plan for Langston Boulevard

Arlington County has shared the Preliminary Concept Plan ([link removed]) (PCP) for the Langston Boulevard corridor. Affordable housing advocates can:
* Attend an upcoming in-person design studio ([link removed])
* Provide your input via a new feedback form ([link removed]) to help refine the planning ideas proposed in the PCP
* Express concern that the PCP falls well short of the 2,500 affordable units promised for the Langston Boulevard corridor in the County's 2015 Affordable Housing Master Plan

AHS has endorsed the Call to Action to the Board from Arlington Community Foundation ([link removed]) . We have asked that they commit to preserving the 30% AMI units at Barcroft Apartments as part of new owner Jair Lynch's upcoming Master Finance and Development Plan.
