What's Next Alexandria, the City's 2012 – 2013 civic engagement initiative, culminated in City Council’s adoption of Resolution 2597, establishing Civic Engagement Principles and supporting processes as set forth in the What’s Next Alexandria Handbook for Civic Engagement, to guide Alexandria’s public decision-making processes. This page functions as a gateway for the community to find information and involvement opportunities on active citywide projects and initiatives.
