City Council 2022 Priorities
To operationalize these values, City Manager James Parajon has directed City of Alexandria staff to develop an interdepartmental business plan for each priority. This plan will consolidate existing plans and contain specific objectives, indicators and quarterly progress updates. Each quarter, an in-depth update on two of the priorities will be provided to City Council and the community.
Each of the following six priorities will be viewed through the lens of equity, environmental justice, civility, transparency, respect and service
Define Our Community Engagement Approach
Use both new and traditional outreach methods to ensure that engagement is efficient, effective and accessible to all stakeholders, creating a clear connection between community input and its effects on policy decision, infrastructure needs and financial considerations.
Support Youth and Families
Explore ways to expand academic, social and emotional services and physical support to all youth during out-of-school hours.
Foster Economic Development
Seek out and consider budgetary, land use, regulatory and other economic development tools to foster sustainable and equitable development, diversify revenue and allow greater investment in our infrastructure.
Develop a Compensation Philosophy
Establish a new compensation philosophy to ensure we are the preferred workplace of choice and that employees feel valued.
