Arlington’s Forestry and Natural Resources Plan open for public feedback

The Arlington County government has released its draft Forestry and Natural Resources Plan. The draft Plan will be open for public feedback and comments until Monday, October 3, 2022.

This is the first draft of the plan. The Planning Commission and County Board will hold public hearings to consider the final version of the Plan at a later date.

If implemented, recommendations in the final Plan will help preserve and increase tree canopy and natural areas in neighborhoods and public spaces throughout the County.
