Civic Federation Collaborative on Development & Tree Canopy & Report

Civic Federation Collaborative on Development & Tree Canopy & Report

The ACCF Environmental Affairs Committee will launch a collaborative on November 30th that focuses on saving trees as private development proceeds in Arlington. The virtual workshops will convene selected stakeholders to develop tree friendly actions, discuss policy options and build consensus. County documents show many neighborhoods lost a significant amount of tree canopy between 2011 and 2016, a trend that continues. The workshops will be conducted by an experienced facilitator and include a wide range of stakeholders from developers to government to individual citizens.

The results of the first scoping sessions will be summarized in a report with any recommended follow-on actions to the ACCF and the public. ATAG will send out an announcement when the report is released to all members of our email list.
