The W&OD Trail sees a lot of use - both as a recreational amenity and as a transportation artery.  These many users also often come into conflict due to differing speeds.  Building on the success of the Dual Trails project in Falls Church, NOVA Parks applied for funding in 2019 to design and build upgrades to the W&OD Trail between Roosevelt St & Carlin Springs Rd in Arlington.  This project could both improve safety and comfort for trail users by reducing conflicts between users, as well as implement a more sustainable design that slows and filters stormwater.

Despite the fact that there is no design yet and despite the new MoA requiring public engagement and environmental review and despite the fact that NOVA Parks cannot receive NVTA grant money for construction without County Board approval, we expect NIMBY opposition and your support is critically important.

Sustainable Mobility for Arlington County launched, officially, in April of 2021. Our initial budget was set by the generous funds contributed to our launch GoFundMe. For us, 2022 is that critically important year where we have to find out if that budget is sustainable year to year.

One of our Board Members has stepped up and agreed to match every donation from now until the end of 2022 until we meet our goal of $1,400. Your $1,400 + his $1,400 will get us to our budget goal for the year and set us up for continued success.
