The long term plans for the neighborhoods shape policies on things like retail, residential and public spaces in Del Ray and Arlandria. These plans were last updated in 2003 for Arlandria and 2005 for Del Ray. With Amazon moving in next door, the new plans aimed to help these neighborhoods hold onto their sense of community.
Previously, in-person meetings in both English and Spanish were held for the neighborhood plans, but the City of Alexandria announced yesterday that it was changing course.
“Meeting materials have been reformatted to an online exercise open through April 17 with an accompanying recorded presentation,” the city said in a press release, “where community members can provide feedback on draft principles developed from feedback generated during the fall community engagement and presented at the January open houses.”
While the infected toll in Alexandria continues to climb, the city said if circumstances change mobile outreach and public presentations can occur to supplement the online engagement.
“Materials and outreach will continue to be provided in Spanish and English and announced through the City’s eNews service, social media postings, and direct correspondence with stakeholders who have provided their contact information,” the city said.
The Arlandria and Del Ray Plans Update community workshop originally scheduled for March 17 has been reformatted to a digital meeting, open through April 17. Help frame a draft vision and themes based on feedback/topics from previous events. Details: https://t.co/TbKwS1FpZ4
