City of Alexandria collecting public feedback on new King Street pedestrian zone

As the city approaches the end of a pilot program that saw the waterfront block of King Street converted into a pedestrian zone, the City of Alexandria is looking for public feedback on the pilot.

The conversion of the unit block of King Street (the start of the street east of Union Street) and the Strand started on Memorial Day weekend and is scheduled to run through Labor Day weekend early next month.

“If you visited the Unit Block of King Street and the Strand or operated a business in that area, we want to hear about your experience,” the city said in a release. “The City of Alexandria is asking the community for feedback on the King Street Place Pilot, which temporarily converted the unit block of King Street (between Union Street and the Strand) and the northern portion of the Strand (approximately between Wales Alley and King Street)…”

The pilot was an expansion of an earlier conversion of the 100 block of King Street to a pedestrian zone. That change was made permanent last year with the city eyeing expansion of the pedestrian zone program to other parts of King Street.

“The City has launched a short online feedback form to provide the public with an opportunity to share what they liked about the pilot, along with any thoughts or ideas for improvements,” the release said. “Feedback will be accepted through Tuesday, September 13, 2022 and will be used to help the City determine how to move the project forward.”
