Alexandria’s Office of Housing has announced the 2020 Housing Summit to examine the current status of affordable housing in the city.
The event is scheduled for Jan. 11 at the Lee Center (1108 Jefferson Street) from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. The main goal of the event is to review the progress of the 2013 Housing Master Plan.
The goal of that plan is to develop or preserve 2,000 housing units through 2025. As of last year, the city was a little over halfway there, with 1,375 units preserved or created. That includes projects that are still “in the pipeline.”
Scheduled events for the Housing Summit include a morning bus tour to highlight recent affordable housing developments in Alexandria. Exhibits will also be available to show programs and services offered by the City’s affordable housing partners.
Breakout sessions will be held throughout the afternoon, covering topics like workforce housing and creating community partnerships.
A closing session is scheduled to look at how Alexandria’s housing progress fits in with local, regional and state efforts.
