The Alexandria Park and Recreation Commission will hold a public hearing on Thursday, February 17, 7 p.m. at the Mount Vernon Recreation Center located at 2701 Commonwealth Ave.

The purpose of the public hearing is to obtain public comment on the proposed site plan on the Four Mile Run Park Expansion. After discussion on the proposed Four Mile Run Park expansion, the Commission will hear comments from City residents on any other park and recreation related issue not previously discussed in a public hearing by the Commission.
