City Dusts Off Arlandria Revitalization Plan on Saturday

Planning Department Attributes Inertia to Lack of Community Involvement.

Your show of support for Arlandria is critical as the economic downturn sidelines initiatives without strong public backing.

Other development is being aggressively pursued by the city:

“We are at the point where it behooves us to focus on this right now,"Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille told WTOP. "This is all at the very beginning stages, and it may not happen until five or 10 years down the road, but we want to make sure that we don't miss our chance."

Mayor Euille was unfortunately not making this impassioned statement
about Arlandria, but this is exactly what we are looking to hear.

  • Please attend Saturday's City Council meeting or e-mail council at:

  • Let the City know it needs to show flexibility & creativity to encourage business & development in Arlandria.

  • Tell them: They need to take a more active and aggressive role in
    encouraging activity by rewarding landowners willing to step
    forward and set the example.
