BRAC Task Force Presents Report to Arlington County Board

Over the next several years, the Department of Defense will vacate 4.2 million square feet of office space in Arlington. In fact, Arlington will lose almost 22,000 jobs, including 17,000 “direct jobs.” The task force was formed by the Economic Development Commission in October 2005 and endorsed by the Board in December.

This afternoon, the Board held a worksession with the BRAC Transition Task Force that lasted just over an hour and one-half. Much more information, including the task force’s report, various PowerPoint presentations, and meeting minutes, is available at BRACArlington, a website set-up by the county. Earlier this week, the Board announced a planning task force for Crystal City, according to this press release.
