Housing Arlington is an umbrella program that will take a proactive, expanded approach to reach an equitable, stable, adaptive community. Over a multi-year period, the program will generate holistic housing solutions through planning and implementation tools, housing policy, financial resources, and innovative local and regional public-private partnerships.
Housing Arlington Initiatives
Six initiatives fall within the overall Housing Arlington program:
- Land Use Tools
- Accessory Dwelling Regulations Update
- Elder Care Zoning Study
- Bonus Density
- Plan Lee Highway
- Housing Conservation District
- Missing Middle Housing Study
Arlington is a desirable community and benefits from an evolving economy and growing population. However, as housing demands have increased, pressures on the local and regional housing market have intensified causing shortfalls in housing supply, limited range of housing types, and rising housing costs. These are regional issues that will require regional solutions.
Housing Arlington aims to generate innovative solutions for a full spectrum of housing affordability. The result will be an inclusive place where households from all walks of life and who earn different incomes can be at home. This includes growing families, young adults who are just starting their careers, and older adults who want to age in place. Teachers, police officers, and firefighters. Moderate-income residents seeking a path to home ownership, lower-income residents who may need additional assistance, and more.
Working beyond traditional policies and programs, Housing Arlington will take a cross-disciplinary approach to think creatively about new, holistic solutions.
