From the offices of the Arlington Economic Development and Arlington Office of Emergency Management:


Arlington Economic Development, working in conjunction with the
Arlington Office of Emergency Management is contacting you as part of
our preparations for the 2009 Presidential Inauguration to provide
information intended to keep the business community prepared, alert
and informed. The entire Washington, D.C. area, including Arlington,
is bracing for record crowds during the inaugural weekend January
17-20, 2009. Crowds and events during the inaugural weekend will
likely prove to be highly disruptive to most Arlington businesses due
to road closures and sharply reduced transit access from unprecedented
Metro usage. Arlington is encouraging telework arrangements for those
businesses that are not closing on the 20th.
Preparations for the Inauguration are not yet 100% finalized and the
details are highly fluid. The easiest way to stay informed about
changes is to refer to the Arlington County Official 2009 Inauguration
Webpage at

In addition, Arlington businesses will have an opportunity to talk
directly to County Manager Ron Carlee on Wednesday, January 14, 2009
at 10:00 a.m. via a CARleeTALK chat room. To access the chat room,
Registration is not required to participate. Transcripts of the chat
will be available following the conclusion of the session.

Lastly, you can view a briefing of Arlington's Inauguration
preparations. It will be broadcast live on AVN Channel 74 (Comcast) or
Verizon Channel 40 at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 13. You can also
watch the webcast from www.arlingtonva.us.

We highly encourage all those who live or work in Arlington to
register for Arlington Alert for up-to-the-minute notices and updates
during the Inauguration weekend. Arlington Alert provides real-time
safety information and emergency alerts via e-mail, cell phone, pager,
BlackBerry or other wireless PDA. Text "1801" to 411911 or go to
