F.C. EDA Hosts Educational Forum on Charter Referendum

The City of Falls Church’s Economic Development Authority (EDA) will host a forum on “Economic Development Questions Surrounding the Charter Referendum” next Wednesday, April 23, at the F.C. Community Center at 7 p.m.

The referendum, if passed, would trigger a Falls Church charter change mandating that a maximum of 40% residential is legal for mixed use projects in the City’s commercially-zoned areas. Discussing the impact of this will be Joe Svatos of the Akridge Company, Lisa Benjamin of Newmark Knight Frank, James Snyder (retired) of Arlington County and Grant Ehat of JBG Rosenfeld Retail. Three additional speakers have been invited but not yet confirmed.
