Arlington Youth Council Meets with City and Regional Planners to Talk Growth
 
Planners from Puget Sound Regional Council met with the Arlington Youth Council Thursday to talk to them about Vision 2050,  the planning strategy for how and where the central Puget Sound region should grow.

The students were given an overview of our population and the forecasted growth, and shown a video about how we plan for where people live, work, and play.  Mayor Barb Tolbert, Councilmember Jan Schuette, and Community Development Director Marc Hayes participated with the youth as they talked about what they loved about Arlington (the river, Lake Goodwin, the High School, coffee shops, and downtown), what they disliked (traffic), and what would they would like to see changed or improved (jobs for teens, trailheads, more local small businesses).  The Youth Council placed Legos on a map of Arlington to show where they thought housing, jobs, and parks should be placed in the future.  Olivia Weaver noted when adding housing, "When you bring people into downtown they get more involved."

The students all agreed that they valued the culture and hometown feel of our area and wanted to preserve that going in to the future.  They also noted that they would appreciate opportunities for apprentice programs and to learn more about civics and planning for Arlington's future.
