Columbia Pike 2020 Plan

The Columbia Pike Plan will be a cooperative effort between Arlington County staff, CPRO, and the residents, community based organizations, property owners, businesses, Civic Associations, Condo and other associations, churches and all other interested groups in the study area.  County staff will coordinate the development of the plan with all of the above groups.  CPRO will facilitate the process ensuring that all of the above groups are included at every phase of the process.

The following is a general description of the planning process beginning with three geographically oriented meetings at which the planning process will be discussed, previous planning efforts will be discussed briefly, and idea generation and refinement will follow. The workshops meetings will be geographically based to optimize citizen participation.  The overall Columbia Pike Initiative process will extend beyond this plan process and will include the implementation of recommendations contained within the plan.

Workshop Meetings

The three geographic areas are defined as follows:

Through this process we will be able to discern area concerns regarding public facilities, housing opportunities, jobs, and job training.
