Neighborhood Conservation

Arlington County’s Neighborhood Conservation Program has been helping to improve and enhance Arlington neighborhoods for 50 years. When the program was created in 1964, the goal was to empower residents by having them come together to discuss and share ideas for improving their neighborhoods.

 

Today, the program provides funding for a variety of improvements including: installation of sidewalks, curbs and gutters, streetlights, signs, park improvements, neighborhood art and beautification. This program empowers citizens to identify and plan projects in their own neighborhoods.

WWCA participation results in community improvement

Communities participating in the Neighborhood Conservation program benefit from being involved in the process for improving their own neighborhoods and help get funds for important projects. It’s also a great way for neighborhoods to directly engage with Arlington County.

A few of the projects WWCA was able to plan and implement by participating in this program include: improved traffic safety, renovated Woodlawn Park, increased safety on road ways and for pedestrians.

WWCA's NCAC Designation and funding gained for improvements

When a neighborhood, such as ours, participates in the Neighborhood Conservation program, it becomes part of a larger community known as the Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee (NCAC). The County Board relies on the NCAC to report on the issues of greatest concern to our community members. Neighborhood Conservation representatives serve on the NCAC and help to develop recommendations for improving the neighborhood conservation process and participate in implementing County bond funds.
