For Immediate Release: February 5, 2011

Public Invited to Provide Comments on Draft Plan for the Four Mile Run Park Expansion - Open Space Properties at 4109-4125 Mount Vernon Ave.

The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities invites the public to provide comments on the proposed park plan and design for the open space properties at 4109-4125 Mount Vernon Ave. A copy of the proposed plan can be found online at alexandriava.gov/Recreation and will be available to view at the Mount Vernon Recreation Center, 2701 Commonwealth Ave., and Cora Kelly Recreation Center, 25 W. Reed Ave., from February 7 through February 17, 2011.

Park Planning staff is seeking input from the community about the proposed park elements and the overall concept plan for the site developed by area architects. The park plan will also be presented for public hearing and approval by the Alexandria Park and Recreation Commission on February 17, 2011, 7 p.m., at the Mount Vernon Recreation Center, 2701 Commonwealth Ave.

These open space parcels were purchased in 2007 in accordance with the City of Alexandria’s Open Space Master Plan through the Open Space Fund. The Arlandria Small Area Plan and Four Mile Run Restoration Master Plan both anticipated the use of this property as public open space with park related uses. A Special Use Permit application for the public use of the former paint store located at 4109 Mount Vernon Avenue was approved by the City Council in June 2010.
