ALXnow’s top stories this week in Alexandria

The biggest news throughout the region was the smoke from the Canadian wildfires that descended on Wednesday and stayed through yesterday. Air quality reached dire levels and the City of Alexandria urged locals to stay inside as much as possible. Alexandria City Public Schools brought all outdoor activities inside and canceled outdoor field trips.

Despite the unexpected hazard, Greater Greater Washington released a report this week showing that overall air quality has improved dramatically in the region over the last ten years, thanks in part to the closure of the GenOn Power Plant in 2012.

The most-read stories this week were:

  1. Village Brauhaus in Old Town is being rebranded
  2. New Mark Center development is first in the area to use new density-for-housing trade
  3. Alexandria advises locals to ‘limit their time outside’ due to smoke
  4. BREAKING: 17-year-old found guilty of murder at Bradlee Shopping Center
