Public Hearing on Potomac Yard Metrorail Station – Saturday, May 16

It's taken years, maybe decades, to get to this point, but after lots of study and public outreach, tomorrow, Saturday May 16th is the City Council public hearing on the Potomac Yard Metro preferred location.

Everyone is welcome to voice their opinion in person tomorrow or submit comments online or via email.

If you haven't voiced an opinion yet, this is your chance. City Council's vote following this hearing is next Wednesday, May 20th and that will determine the City preferred alternative.

The details:

Public Hearing on Potomac Yard Metrorail Station – Saturday, May 16
The City of Alexandria will hold a Public Hearing on the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station on Saturday, May 16, at 9:30 a.m. in the Council Chambers located at City Hall, 301 King St. 
The Public Hearing will include a discussion of the City staff report recommending that City Council select Alternative B as the preferred alternative for the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station, an overview of feedback from the public and other City boards and commissions, and a discussion of next steps in the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) process. There will be an opportunity for the public to comment on the staff recommendation. 
All persons wishing to speak before City Council must fill out a speaker's form (which may be found in the rear of the Council Chambers) and present it to the City Clerk. If you have a prepared statement, please present it to the City Clerk. Speakers can submit their written comments to the City Clerk and the speaker’s form is located online.
City Council will consider the selection of a locally preferred alternative for the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station at a special meeting to be held on Wednesday, May 20, at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 301 King Street.
