County Board to hear O'Connell proposal on March 15

The Arlington County Board has announced it will hold a hearing on the O’Connell light proposal on Tuesday, March 15, at 6:30 p.m.

The discussion had been scheduled for the meeting on Saturday, but it has been moved to the Tuesday night meeting. So far, it is the only item on the agenda.

The County Manager has not yet made her recommendation on the matter and it is not clear when the County Board will vote on it. Some county officials had indicated the vote could be delayed, possibly  until June. But the Board will hear comments about it on Tuesday night.

Residents of the neighborhood impacted by the proposal are encouraged to attend.
