Comment-Period-Closed-Check-Back-Soon-to-See-the-Final-Resiliency-Plan

Comment Period Closed: Check Back Soon to See the Final Resiliency Plan!

Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback to on the Final Draft of the THINKAlex Resiliency Plan!

Now, the project team will spend time reviewing all final feedback and making adjustments or changes to the Land Use, Housing, and Transportation Plans.

Over this eighteen-month engagement process, the citizens of Alexandria spent many hours meeting, working, reviewing, and crafting the THINKAlex Plan. The result is a Plan that has truly been created by and for the City of Alexandria.

Soon, the Plan will be finished and ready to be submitted to Council for adoption. Check back soon to download and view the Final THINKAlex Resiliency Plan, as well as to find out when the Plan will go to Council for approval.
