ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

It’s been a busy week at ALXnow with lots of community discussion on issues like single-family zoning and new bus routes through North Old Town.

Alexandria also got a new permanent police chief when acting Police Chief Don Hayes, a longtime Alexandria police officer, got the job.

There were also a few new openings this week: like Taco Bamba opening near not-Landmark and boutique Yellow Jacket opening in Old Town.
