Tonight, the City of Alexandria is launching a kick-off meeting for the 18-month process of updating and potentially reshaping city policy governing the West End.

According to the city’s website, the goal is to “engage the community to create a shared vision for the future of Alexandria West, addressing topics such as equity, culture, housing, getting around, land use, parks, and safety.”

The planning area mostly focuses on the westernmost parts of Alexandria, on the west side of Van Dorn Street. The plan is an update to a 1992 small area plan for the area and a 2012 plan that focused on the neighborhoods near Beauregard Street.

“Creating an updated community vision for the future allows us to proactively plan for change and prepare for challenges and opportunities in the years to come,” the city said.

The virtual event starts at 7 p.m. tonight. Attendees can register for the meeting online.

“Tuesday, November 15 at 7 p.m., community members, businesses and organizations are invited to attend a virtual kick-off meeting launching the City’s 18-month Alexandria West planning process,” the city said in a release.

According to the city website, the discussion over the next 18 months will explore issues of housing affordability, equity, culture, land use, mobility, pedestrian and cyclist safety and accessibility, and connecting both existing and future open space.

The city said the meeting will be recorded with a video posted afterward and pop-up events will be held around the West End.
