City of Alexandria Invites Community to Next City Hall Visioning Study Meeting 

­­For Immediate Release: September 13, 2019

The City of Alexandria will host a second City Hall Visioning Study community meeting on September 30, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the City Hall Sister Cities Conference Room 1101 (301 King St.). Learn about the City Hall Visioning Study and potential approaches to the City Hall renovation; take a brief tour of City Hall and learn about its history; view City Hall initiatives through gallery displays; and ask questions and share ideas for future uses of City Hall.

The City continues to seek input to gauge which functions or services are most important to be housed in City Hall. Results from the second community meeting along with previously collected data will help to define building occupancy and determine how City Hall can best deliver services for the community.

City Hall is the center of civic activity for Alexandrians, is a source of community pride, and will remain the seat of City government. In addition to the offices of the Mayor, City Council, and City Manager, City Hall houses more than 300 employees in various City departments and agencies. Portions of the building were originally constructed in 1871, and after many decades of service since the last renovation, major updates are needed throughout City Hall to better serve staff, residents and visitors.
