Planning continues for future of downtown Arlington

The city of Arlington continues to work with Western Washington University to formulate a plan for the future of the city's downtown corridor.

Planning began this fall and continued with an April 23 teleconference Zoom meeting with presentations for the plans for  Olympic Avenue.

"We all know this is the crowned jewel of Arlington," said Arlington Mayor Barbara Tolbert. "This will help guide investments in our city to make this vision come to life."

Students from the university are spending a class for the entire year on the project of the down-town.

"The students from WWU come to us from the Sustainable Communities Partnership," said Tolbert.

"These students have spent time in Arlington's downtown and have talked to people. They've done numerous surveys to gather input," she said.
