Activists push for affordable housing on public land in Arlington

Housing activists pushing Arlington County to build 1,500 new units of affordable housing on county-owned land said Tuesday that they do not plan to back off after the County Board said it will consider the idea along with other proposals in the coming year.

“We are not going away,” said Robert Buckman, one of the leaders of Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Empowerment (VOICE), which collected 10,375 signatures in the past six months in support of its plan. “Priorities are nice, but without deadlines, nothing happens.”
