ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

This week, Alexandria made some moves on new policy to liven up the city: permanently making the end of King Street a pedestrian zone and showing some growth in plans to add more arts uses around Old Town North.

Meanwhile, the city has also made some progress on affordable housing. A lottery is being held for new units near Potomac Yard and a new plan is in the works for a large-scale zoning overhaul.

All is not quite well with affordable housing though: residents at Southern Towers have said there are ongoing issues around rent increases, health concerns, and evictions.
