Turbulent week in Alexandria, with tropical storms battering the city and locals struggling with a dangerous heat wave.

It was a big week for city politics, with the City Council meeting in-person for the first time in over a year. At the meeting, the Council approved some development plans for Landmark Mall and cut funding away for school resource officers.

In the world of local development, the Alexandria Housing Development Corporation unveiled new plans for their Chirilagua-Arlandria affordable housing development and on the flip-side a new development on Eisenhower Avenue will have none.
