COVID-19 CAMPAIGN UPDATE:

“These are tough times for Arlington and for America.
Our primary focus needs to be making sure that everyone is safe, housed, and fed.
Then we need to get Arlington back to work, back to school, and back to living.”

Short Term

Our primary focus needs to be making sure that everyone is safe, housed, and fed.

– Universal Testing, PPE/Masks for all, Field hospitals/deployment teams
– Vulnerable (older, disabled, undocumented, disconnected, low income)
– Anti-Asian sentiment

– Rent and mortgage relief; stop evictions
– Property tax relief?
– Empty motels and hotels for homeless+first responders/health workers

– Food assistance (funding, distribution)
– AFAC, pantries, SNAP
– Urban agriculture (“victory gardens”, farmers markets, vertical farming)

Medium Term

Let’s get Arlington back to work, back to school, and back to living.

– Small businesses (grants, loans, buy local)
– Office vacancies (federal, tech, education, medical)
– Jobs
– Federal/state stimulus/aid

– Distance learning
– Digital equity (connectivity, devices, training, support)
– Achievement/opportunity gap (catching up on “unfinished learning”)

– Double down on open space
– Green roofs/indoor parks
– Repurpose road space for walkers, runners, cyclists to achieve physical distancing

Long Term

The world will be radically changed; fundamental trends accelerated and forced.

– Budget Priority changes: Core Infrastructure+Services
– Economy (Cloud, Automation, AI, Big Tech) (Government, Military, Education, Healthcare)

– Housing (population decline from telework, birthrate, movement from cities) “Focused density, less population, more space”
– Schooling (reduce K-12 student generation, increase college population)

– Mass Transit (long distance vs short/local)
– Culture / Shared Identity / Community Focus
