The "recycling center" parking lot is being repurposed by the Columbia Forest Civic Association for the West Columbia Pike Food Truck Party Series. It's just a dirty grungy lot. It could be more. It could be a multiuser multi purpose space for community use. It could place make on the Pike. It could have art. It could be so much more. But we can't get anyone to see past the dollar signs.
Millennials end up going to live where the rent is cheap, which is south Arlington. But beyond rent, we need to have attractive communities. And Columbia Pike is ear marked for funding and focus.
