It’s the first week of 2023 and Alexandria is off to a busy start.

Some potentially big changes down the road are starting small, like the launch of a guaranteed income pilot and a new ban on red-light turns at a couple of intersections.

There were some closures as well: EagleBank is shutting down its Alexandria branch  (277 S. Washington Street) in March while Deli News & More (1406) shut its doors — with a new deli planned to replace it in March.
