Rep. Frank R. Wolf (R-Va.) has scheduled a June 10 public meeting at Arlington Hall on the plans of the State Department's Foreign Service Institute to move to the Arlington Army facility in 1989.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at Arlington Hall's theater.
The Foreign Service Institute, which trains 10,000 federal employes a year in foreign languages and cultures, has announced plans to build a new $61 million facility on the 90-acre campus located on Rte. 50 between George Mason Drive and Glebe Road.
The agency wants to consolidate its facilities, now scattered in leased buildings throughout Rosslyn, at Arlington Hall. It is currently the home of the Army's Intelligence and Security Command, which plans to move to Fort Belvoir in Fairfax County in 1988.
Defense Department and State Department authorization bills clearing the way for the moves are pending before Congress.
"In view of citizen interest in this proposal, I believe it will be helpful for everyone to have a chance to learn more about it," Wolf said of his plans for the meeting, which will be attended by Arlington, Army and State Department officials.
Citizens are asked to enter through Arlington Hall's George Mason Drive gate, which will open at 6 p.m.
