What's Next Alexandria - Developing Alexandria's Civic Engagement Handbook

Over the course of the What's Next Alexandria process, community members worked together to develop civic engagement principles, a civic engagement process template, key outcomes demonstrating success, and a communications and outreach strategy. These four items comprise the core of Alexandria's Handbook for Civic Engagement which will guide all City projects in the future.
