 Dear Friend:

    Please help preserve Arlington's parks and open spaces! Support the 2002 Parks Bond at the polls this November.

    Arlington is one of the most densely-populated counties in the nation. Over the last 22 years, Arlington's voters have recognized the importance of parks and open spaces for our growing population. Voters have approved bond proposals to develop and maintain the county's parks and recreation facilities. These bonds enabled Arlington to acquire land for nature centers, soccer fields, running and biking trails, historic preservations like Fort C.F. Smith, and to build facilities like Thomas Jefferson Community Center and Barcroft Recreation Center.

    Parks beautify neighborhoods. Parks increase the value of your investment. Parks celebrate the best of Arlington.

    On July 20, the County Board considers a Parks and Recreation bond issue for the November 5 ballot totaling $20,500,000:

The County's 2003 Capital Improvement Plan also covers pay-as-you-go investments in parks, including Northern Virginia Regional Parks Authority ($440K)

In 2000, Arlington's voters approved a parks bond of $25,875,000 to fund these projects:

You can help in four ways:
