Feb. 26 Meeting on Green Streets Project at N. Kensington & N. 32nd Streets

posted Feb 14, 2013, 10:59 AM by RockSpring CivicAssociation

The following meeting announcement from Arlington County concerns a green streets/rain garden project planned for the RSCA area. Even if you do not live in the immediate project vicinity but do wish to learn more about green streets, follow the link to the County's responses to resident questions, which are quite informative.

Arlington County is designing Green Street rain gardens that will be installed along North Kensington and 32nd Street North. County staff met with the residents that are adjacent to the rain garden sites in July 2012 and have incorporated their feedback and comments into an updated design. We hope that you will attend our upcoming meeting to learn more about this project's status.

Meeting materials and the plant palette options that will be considered for the rain gardens are posted here: www.arlingtonva.us/departments/EnvironmentalServices/Sustainability/page88466.aspx.

Where:    Nottingham Elementary School's Library, 5900 Little Falls Road, Arlington, VA 22207
