Neighborhood Conservation Plan

By Jon Glassman 

Overview:

The Neighborhood Conservation Planning Committee (NCPC) is made of up Hall’s Hill High View Park (HHHVP) residents who are interested in improving the look, feel, and vibrancy of our neighborhood. In partnership with the Arlington Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee, the NCPC works to plan projects within High View Park. These projects involve a lot of input from residents and allow us to identify and plan projects that are beneficial to the community. Throughout the county, the NC Program provides funding for a variety of improvements including: installation of sidewalks, curbs and gutters, streetlights, signs, park improvements, neighborhood art and beautification. 

NC Plan Revision:

Last updated in 1994, our Neighborhood Conservation Plan serves as a general framework and basis for future neighborhood improvements. HHHVP has a number of pressing upgrades, including: missing sidewalks to improve walkability, improving our tree canopy, modernizing our street lighting and signage, and addressing specific concerns over crime and public safety. Based on the feedback we received from our neighborhood survey last spring, we are in the process of revising our NC plan and hope to bring our plan to the Arlington County Board for approval 2017.

Volunteer Opportunities:

The success of the NCPC is based on volunteer input. We need your help in several areas including: Traffic, Transportation and Parking, Community Services, Public Safety and Health, and Land Use and Zoning. 

We also need help updating our plan. This is something that you CAN do from home. Although we do have periodic meetings, most of the help that we need right now is writing. If you like to write and are interested, contact Jon Glassman at jmlca.ncpc@gmail.com
