SUBJECT: Adoption of the following:

  1. Washington Boulevard and Kirkwood Road Special GLUP Study “Plus” and Concept Plan. Resulting from a Special GLUP Study in response to concurrent requests to amend the GLUP for three contiguous sites, the proposed document is a conceptual long range plan and policy document for future development within the subject study area, generally located northwest of the intersection of these two streets. The document proposed for adoption includes guiding principles, plan element concept maps, recommendations for GLUP and Master Transportation Plan (MTP) amendments, and additional background information pertaining to the study. Collectively, these elements address recommendations regarding circulation and public space, building height and form, land use, and other general planning and urban design guidance within the study area. Based on public comment received during the advertising and public hearing period, further revisions to the document may be made including, but not limited to, the recommended heights, densities, and street locations and types. The proposed Washington Boulevard and Kirkwood Rd. Special GLUP Study “Plus” and Concept Plan may be examined on the project website, https://projects.arlingtonva.us/plans-studies/general-land-use-plan/special-study-washington-kirkwood/
  2. GP-338-17-1 Amendments to the GLUP Map to add Note 27 identifying the Washington Boulevard and Kirkwood Road Special GLUP Study “Plus” and Concept Plan as a guiding document that further articulates the County’s adopted future vision for this area; and to amend the GLUP designation for the Ball Family Burial Grounds from “Service Commercial” to “Semi-Public.”
  3. Amendments to the MTP Map for the block generally located northwest of the Washington Boulevard and Kirkwood Rd. intersection to designate a new area #13 as “Areas Planned for New Streets, Washington Boulevard & Kirkwood Rd. Area”; and reclassify the segment of Washington Boulevard between North Lincoln St. and Kirkwood Rd. from Type D Arterial Street (Primarily Garden Apartments and Townhouse Neighborhoods) to Type B Arterial Street (Primarily Urban Mixed-Use).
