Alexandria, VA – Can you imagine? Alexandria wants your input on the future of Del Ray! It’s true. This fall, the City is hosting “community conversations” as the first part of the planning process to update the two Mount Vernon Avenue plans.
According to the Mount Vernon Avenue Business Area Plan:
“Mt. Vernon Avenue is a vital corridor, with a rich history and eclectic character that makes it an attractive place to live, work and shop. Building upon its unique characteristics, the Avenue will remain a special neighborhood as change takes place. The vision for Mt. Vernon Avenue involves preserving its traditional neighborhood character, protecting its unique historical identity, serving the needs of the surrounding community and maintaining the Avenue as a competitive and viable place for business.”
The process is just beginning and the public, neighborhood groups, and local businesses are invited to weigh in on when, where, and how the community conversations should be conducted.
The deadline for input is Oct. 4, and anyone interested should contact Principle Planner Radhika Mohan at 703-746-3850.
