Alexandria Waterfront Commission Schedules Annual Waterfront Walk
The Alexandria Waterfront Commission will hold its annual Waterfront Walk on Saturday, June 9 at 10 a.m. The walk will begin at the bulkhead in Windmill Hill Park, 501 S. Union St., and continue north along the Waterfront to Oronoco Bay Park. This annual event provides Committee members the opportunity to assess operational conditions and issues along the Waterfront.
The purpose of the Alexandria Waterfront Commission is to advise the City Council and staff on issues related to Alexandria's historic Potomac River waterfront, and advise on implementation of the Waterfront Small Area Plan. The Commission is composed of 21 members representing a particular neighborhood, community organization, or City committee. The Commission was established by City Council on April 14, 2012, and replaces the Waterfront Committee, which was founded in 1989. The Commission meets the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 am at City Hall Room 2000, 301 King Street, unless otherwise indicated on the agenda.
