It’s officially Spring, which means Spring Cleaning. Arlington’s Tool Sharing program can help residents tackle their home maintenance projects. The Tool Sharing Program offers Arlington residents a variety of tools and equipment they may checkout, free of charge, to assist with property cleanup and improvement. The most popular tools include push mowers, string trimmers, leaf blowers, pole saws and pressure washers.

As of March 2024, more than 850 reservations have been completed and 2,744 tools have been used by residents. Additionally, more than 957 possible code violations have been proactively corrected because of the program.

You can read more about the Tool Sharing Program and Arlington’s Home Improvement Incentive Program, in the latest edition of the Champion Great Neighborhoods newsletter. All quarterly City Council priority newsletters are produced in a digital format, allowing for layers of additional video content and important links.
