The Lee Highway Alliance was formed to create a joint community vision for a more economically vibrant, walkable, attractive Lee Highway corridor – one that benefits neighborhoods and the business community. The ultimate goal is the development of a new Generalized Land Use Plan (GLUP) for Lee Highway to guide future rezoning and development applications.
With help from the Working Group On Renaming Lee Highway and the Arlington community, we are determined to realize the years-long grassroots community effort to create a welcoming Main Street by removing the word "Highway"and to begin to reconcile the painful racial history many in our community have experienced by removing the name "Lee."

As stated by County Board Member, Katie Cristol: “My colleagues and I are glad to see neighborhood leaders as skilled at consensus-building as the Lee Highway Alliance begin this important conversation about our community’s past – and our vision for our shared future.”
