The Arlington County Board has approved a non-binding letter of intent with Virginia Hospital Center to sell 5 acres of land north of the hospital (the Edison Complex) to VHC for potential future expansion. The TLHCA will participate in a task force in coming months and years to work with the hospital on plans for the expansion. See the County's news release for more information on the potential sale. 

Patrick Henry Improvements

Construction has begun on the Tara-Leeway Heights Neighborhood Conservation improvement along Patrick Henry Drive. This improvement, which involves making three intersections more pedestrian friendly, mitigating storm water runoff and attempts to reduce speeding especially at 18 St N., was approved by the County Board in 2011. All affected residents have been provided contact information regarding the project. See the County's website for information on the Neighborhood Conservation Program.
