    Forum to discuss revitalization plan for Arlington Heights

    Arlington and regional planners are holding a community forum on Wednesay, May 23 at 7 p.m. at the Dallin Elementary School to discuss a neighborhood revitalization plan for Arlington Heights.

    Representatives from the Arlington Department of Planning and Community Development and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council will present options for spurring neighborhood revitalization, including an analysis of existing barriers to investment and potential solutions for those problems. Planners say community participation in this meeting will be key at this interactive forum.

    “Arlington Heights still has that traditional neighborhood feel, and while some things are leaving, it provides an opportunity for new things to come to the neighborhood and make it an even better place to live and work,” says Karen Walson, owner of Classic Kitchen and Bath Design at 1321 Mass Ave in the Heights.


    This is the first public meeting for the Arlington Heights planning project, which launched in late 2017. The planning process will result in an Arlington Heights Neighborhood Action Plan.
