With little advance notice to the Arlington community, a 3-to-2 County Board majority on May 19th authorized the County Manager to sell off the historic Reeves farmhouse and green space to a private developer or individual. There is overwhelming support in Arlington to keep the farmhouse in the public domain and have the County renovate the farmhouse so it can be used as the nonprofit Reevesland Learning Center where kids and adults can learn about growing and preparing healthy food and strengthening community. That is the ideal way to build on the agriculture legacy of the late Nelson Reeves and to honor the expectations of the Reeves family when they sold the property to the County in 2001. But for 14 years, the County has boarded up and neglected the 19th century farmhouse. Let's make the Reeves farmhouse a wonderful, inspiring asset for all of Arlington--for this generation and future generations.
