Arlandria & the City's Strategic Planning Process

The strategic planning process is an effort by City Council to move the City forward in realizing the goals of our community. It also offers another venue for stakeholders in the North End neighborhoods in the Arlandria area to voice their opinion about the priorities that are important to them.

Goal #1 of the City's strategic plan states: "There is Quality Development and Redevelopment, Support for Local Businesses, and a Strong, Diverse, and Growing Local Economy.

But as Nick's earlier post suggested, this goal for Alexandria may not be a priority for Council when it comes to Arlandria.

City Council Members Paul Smedberg & Kerry Donley have been lead a series of meetings on this topic and have been soliciting input from citizens.

Video from the October 22 meeting, for instance, is here along with tweets summarizing the comments made here.

The next meeting in the series is Wednesday, November 4th at 7 p.m. in Room 2000 at City Hall.

Please offer your comments about Arlandria's place in Alexandria's strategic goals.
