Letters to the Editor: Clark Column Understates How Arlington Boxes Out Small Business

“Mr. Clark has lived in Arlington long enough to know how the development machine operates: Increasing the general land use plan’s (GLUP’s) allowable density supercharges the land’s development potential.

Letters to the Editor: Use Federal Funds To Build Affordable Housing for Families In Need

I write to support a transformational investment in affordable housing proposed by VOICE (Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement). After four months of study, VOICE urges that at least 10 percent of Virginia’s share, $430 million, be used to produce affordable housing for families with incomes below 30 percent of area median income (AMI). This amount could create over 6,000 affordable units across the Commonwealth.
