Envision Courthouse Square open house this Wednesday

The Envision Courthouse Square planning process will have an open house this Wednesday, June 17, from 3pm to 8pm in the Courthouse Plaza Lobby, 2100 North Clarendon Boulevard. Here's the Courthouse Square Draft Plan.

The draft plan includes only two references to Rosslyn. One is a reference to tree canopies in the Rosslyn-Ballston corridor. The second indicates that 6% of the respondents to the Envision Courthouse Square survey live in Rosslyn. Lack of attention to Rosslyn in the Envision Courthouse Square draft plan shows lack of vision and lack of appreciation for close neighbors and friends.

The Arlington County justice center, next to what's currently called Courthouse Square, is part of the Rosslyn police district. Courthouse has much to gain from becoming part of a Rosslyn co-prosperity sphere. Courthouse Square should be transformed into Rosslyn Town Circle. It's time for a grass-roots uprising to bring Courthouse the benefit of becoming part of Rosslyn.
