About the Process
In June and July, we started reaching out to the community to see how they use courts, parking, shelter, etc. at Bluemont. The public was invited to share their experiences at Bluemont via an online questionnaire and in-person canvassing at the 2019 Arlington County Fair, parks and tennis courts around the area. The online feedback tool accepted responses through August 31 and the results will be used to help plan upcoming outreach efforts.
