Part of the Complete Streets Design Guidelines

The City of Alexandria is updating the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan and developing Complete Streets Design Guidelines.  The update of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan will include an evaluation of existing conditions, constraints and needs, as well as a review of existing policies, goals and objectives. The Plan will identify short and long-term projects to make walking and biking safer in Alexandria.  As part of this project, Complete Street Design Guidelines are being developed to ensure that Alexandria’s streets are serving the needs of all users.

Stakeholders are encouraged to give feedback using an interactive crowdsourcing map that allows users to identify where they would like to see pedestrian and bicycle improvements and locations for future Capital Bikeshare stations.  In addition, stakeholders can fill out an online survey.  The survey and the map are available in English and Spanish.

The first public meeting for the project will be held on Tuesday, September 30, from 7 to 9 p.m., at the Minnie Howard Campus of TC Williams High School located at 3801 West Braddock Road in Alexandria.

The City of Alexandria invites city residents to participate in a survey on the future direction of public art in Alexandria. It should take you only ten to fifteen minutes to complete. Your responses will help the City to better understand residents’ thoughts on public art, where public art would have a strong impact in Alexandria and how projects can create a sense of community, pride and engagement. The results will be shared with a consulting team and will help shape the recommendations in the Alexandria Public Art Master Plan, to be completed in 2014.

You can access the survey via this link.
