The Development Division oversees all development proposals in the City from single-family homes to large projects such as Potomac Yard. Our City is a diverse and attractive place to live and work, and the Development Division works to retain and enhance Alexandria's quality of life by ensuring that development proposals:
- Are consistent with the Master Plan and Zoning Ordinance,
- consist of the highest quality building design, urban design and site planning, and
- provide an overall public benefit.
To meet these challenges, the Division employs a rigorous and responsive development review process, public education, and participation with residents and civic groups.
