Wanted to share a few more sites we're proposing, this time in South Arlington.

They're both in the Claremont neighborhood. One is near the intersection of Walter Reed Drive and S. Dinwiddie Street, next to the trail that runs alongside Walter Reed. Here's a link (http://bit.ly/1M0ZQxH) to a document with more information, including photographs of the location.

We also seek to get neighborhood-specific input on each site. I've created a brief online survey (http://bit.ly/1W3H1UK) that shows the location and asks a few questions about your thoughts on the location. If you happen to live in the Claremont neighborhood, please feel free to fill it out.

We're also planning to work with Arlington Public Schools on an additional station that would be located at Wakefield High. That station would serve both the neighborhood and the school community. Right now we don't have a specific site picked out, but I'll be working with the school/APS on identifying a good location.

I'll be talking about both of the locations at the next meeting of the Claremont Citizens Association. That'll be from 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at the Claremont Elementary School Library.

I'd also note that, although it's not technically in Claremont, we are planning to install a station at the Barcroft recreation center. That's likely to happen this spring. Finally, in case it's helpful to look at, here's a link (https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=z3Fgt6AsRKb0.kEOw7JyE_gug&msa=0&ll=38.88796%2C-77.096987&spn=0.028293%2C0.066047) to Arlington's overall expansion map.

Thanks!
Jason

Just so you know, that trail has a name - the Lucky Run trail, after the nearby stream.

Thanks - that's good to know. Has a much better ring to it than "Four Mile Run Trail spur," which is how I'd been thinking of it.
