What We Do

Performance Reports

Performance reports provide departmental data on select headline indicators, including 1) those from the past three years, 2) 2016 estimates and 3) long-term targets. This information, which is used to track and evaluate performance through the City’s AlexStat process, is jointly developed by individual departments and the Office of Performance and Accountability.

Alexandria's Strategic Plan

Imagine the year 2022 in Alexandria. Imagine how you work, how you play, how you experience your community. How do you get around? Where do you spend your time? What has changed? What has stayed the same? The City of Alexandria needs your help to create our next strategic plan. Learn how you can participate by clicking here:

Community Survey

As part of the City of Alexandria's strategic, data-driven effort, the City conducts a survey of our residents.  This helps the City Government know more about resident's expectations for the City Government as well as how well we are performing for our community.


AlexStat is a continuous improvement process focused on monitoring performance and collaborative problem solving to achieve City outcomes and department goals.  This is accomplished by having regular meetings between the City Manager and departments that check-in on city performance, analyze issues, collaboratively problem solve, and follow-up on results.
