Development Division

The Development Division works to retain and enhance Alexandria's quality of life by ensuring that development proposals are consistent with the City's Master Plan and Zoning Ordinance; consist of the highest quality building design, urban design and site planning; and provide an overall public benefit. To meet these challenges the Division employs a rigorous and responsive development review process, ensuring that the community is kept informed and encouraged to participate.
