Williamsburg neighborhood was one of three neighborhoods in Arlington
selected to participate in a spring 2012 safety campaign called Neighborhood Drive 25.
This campaign lasted one month and used the tools of education and
enforcement to reduce travel speeds on targeted neighborhood streets
without the use of physical traffic calming measures. In the
Williamsburg neighborhood, North Ohio Street and 28th Street North had been identified for the spring campaign. For more details, please see this letter, dated April 16, 2012, from Mary Hynes, Chair of the Arlington County Board.

- Traffic and Pedestrian Safety Survey:
In February, the Williamsburg Civic Association set up a Traffic and
Pedestrian Safety Committee to identify, discuss, and resolve traffic
and pedestrian safety problems in our neighborhood. As a first
step, we are deploying a short survey to get input from
neighbors. Many of the questions on the survey were on our
Neighborhood Conservation Plan survey in the late 1990's; and we have
historical data on how residents perceived the issues back then. But
things have changed, and we need a better sense of neighborhood views
The survey is available in Microsoft Word format here. Please complete the survey & return it by 18 April 2011, in one of two ways:
the survey electronically and email the Word file of the survey with
your answers and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org. (preferred)
- Or: fill in a printed version of the survey and mail it to:
6523 North 27 St, Arlington , VA 22213
