Arlington board to vote Saturday on plan to add more affordable housing

The Arlington County Board will decide Saturday whether to significantly expand its goals for affordable housing over the next 25 years by requiring nearly 1 in 5 residences to be within the financial reach of low- to
moderate-income households.

The plan, three years in the making, is the latest attempt by lawmakers to ensure that at least some housing in the increasingly expensive Northern Virginia suburbs remains affordable to starting teachers, food preparers, retirees and others who make 60 percent or less of the area median income — about $65,000 for a family of four, or $45,900 for a single person.
