Sustainable Communities Downtown Plan

The City of Arlington is contracting  with Western Washington University Sustainable Communities program to create a downtown corridor plan with community input during the 2019-2020 academic year.

The City of Arlington has worked hard over the last several years on initiatives to revitalize the downtown corridor.  To further this work, we desire to have a strategic long-term plan that addresses retaining the character of the area, identifying improvements, capitalizing on the Centennial Trail, expanding the physical main street area, utilizing the main street programs, and identifying smart growth initiatives.

Final report will be available at the end of June, 2020.
