Elder Care Zoning Update Study Survey

Arlington County is updating and modernizing its zoning regulations for elder care housing. “Elder care” encompasses assisted living facilities, nursing homes, memory care, independent living, as well as facilities which offer multiple types of elder care within the same building or campus.

Currently, Arlington’s zoning regulations strictly limit where new assisted living facilities and nursing homes can be built. One of the central goals of the County’s zoning update will be to permit elder care housing in additional zoning districts that already allow multifamily residential and commercial/mixed use development.

As we consider where in our community we should consider permitting elder care housing, especially assisted living and memory care facilities, we want to hear from you.  Take a few minutes to complete our survey before it closes Oct. 15, 2019.
