Petitions with 375 signatures presented to County Board

Residents of the Williamsburg and Arlington East Falls Church neighborhoods presented the County Board with petitions carrying the signatures of 375 Arlington residents who are opposed to Bishop O'Connell's request to install lights and expand its football and baseball facilities.

The petitions were presented to Board members Mary Hynes and Barbara Favola at the board's New Year's Day meeting. The residents are still collecting additional signatures and will present them in the near future.
