ALEXANDRIA, Va – Alexandria is requesting input from citizens about planned renovations for the City Hall facility. Alexandrians can participate in the visioning study that will culminate with the design and construction of the renovated building starting in 2022.

The current building dates to 1871. It houses more than 300 employees, in addition to the offices of the mayor, city council, and city manager. Decades have passed since the last renovation, and major updates are needed to better serve staff, the community and visitors.

Four years ago, the city identified current and future space needs for each department within City Hall. It concluded that not all departments would be served by another renovation and that some offices would have to be relocated, which would be better for the community

The idea behind the visioning study is to learn which services should be placed in City Hall based on their importance to the community. The study is intended to guide construction of the renovated building.

Those who wish to provide feedback can do so by clicking HERE. Draft approaches will be available for view at a community meeting on July 31, from 6:30–8:30 p.m., in the Sister Cities Conference Room of City Hall, located at 301 King Street.
