Arlington via Google Earth: Your Town, Your Future

UPDATED Oct. 2: The Arlington Redevelopment Board on Sunday, Sept. 25, reviewed at its annual goal-setting meeting a list of projects permitted in 2020 through 2022 and several that may come to the board. Of note:

  • Arlington's master plan, adopted in 2015, expires soon, and the board has Community Development Block Grant funds to support an update. The board discussed timing of this effort, in relation to MBTA zoning.
  • Members asked about the Hotel Lexington, site of the former VFW building on Mass. Ave. in the Heights. Staff believes the owner ran into problems with financing and may come back with a multifamily project.
