Manager's Report - March 9, 2012

FY 2013 Budget Process Update

Over the next few weeks, City Council and City staff will continue to work on the City Manager’s Proposed Fiscal Year 2013 General Operating Budget and Capital Improvement Program through a series of work sessions, and public hearings in March and April.  City Council will finalize the Fiscal Year 2013 Approved Budget and Capital Improvement Program on Monday, May 2.

Parking Adjudication Program Changes

The City has announced changes to the City parking adjudication program that will begin later this month for vehicle owners who have received and wish to contest parking citations. The Parking Adjudication Office will move to City Hall, Room 1700, on March 19. Walk-in hours for contesting parking tickets will change, and vehicle owners will be offered a variety of online adjudication options, including video web conferencing and teleconferencing.


Soil Capping of Potomac Yard Landbay D

The planned hauling in of about 1,000 truckloads of dirt to the Potomac Yard Landbay D (the nearly landlocked landbay between the Metrorail and CSX tracks adjacent to Potomac Greens) has started.  The first layer of the soil cap will be largely clay, with an upper layer of top soil.  The first layer of soil is coming from the Madison apartment site underground garage excavation currently underway in the 800 block of North Henry Street.  Having a good source of soil nearby is a cost savings to both developers in that the hauling of the dirt is short distance.  It also reduced the truck traffic impact on the City.  This project was facilitated by the Potomac Greens homeowners association who signed a memorandum of understanding with the developer.  City construction inspectors are monitoring this project.  This soil capping project should be largely finished this month and the land seeded for grass to begin growing.


Southern Towers Announces Renovations to Berkeley Building

In February, management of the Southern Towers apartment complex held a second meeting with residents to discuss potential renovations.  Renovations were previously discussed at a meeting last May when the management entered the Beauregard planning process, and at multiple Beauregard Corridor Stakeholders Group (BCSG) meetings over the last year. (The City is in the process of considering the proposed Beauregard Small Area Plan, which includes the Southern Towers property).  Planned renovations to the Berkeley building will begin, at the earliest, in 18 to 24 months. The property’s owners are in the planning stage of the process and have not yet fully determined the scope of these renovations. Accordingly, they do not yet know 1) if the work will be able to be completed with residents in place, or if residents will need to vacate during the process; and 2) what rental rate increases will be. Southern Towers representatives have indicated that they will continue to meet with residents to discuss their plans and will hold meetings with the Berkeley residents as more information about that building's renovations becomes available.


Alexandria 2010 Census Data Profile

A demographic profile of Alexandria in 2010, prepared by city staff based on a variety of U.S. Census sources, is now available for on-line viewing or downloading. The report outlines the important and continuing influence of the postwar baby boom on growth and change in the U.S. and the city. Recent changes in race and ethnicity within the city are mapped. The report includes data on income, education, housing tenancy, ancestry, commuting, disability, foreign-born population, geographic mobility, and many other characteristics that help define the Alexandria of today. Staff will present some of the report’s findings to the City Council at an upcoming meeting.
