Zoning for Housing and Housing for All

The City of Alexandria is bundling efforts to address our housing crisis by combining two initiatives: Zoning for Housing, and Housing for All.

The Zoning for Housing program aims to expand housing production and affordability through reforming City regulations, while the Housing for All program will help Alexandrians learn the history of past discriminatory housing policies and how these can be countered today.

Council Legislative Meeting
November 22, 6:00 PM
Watch recording here, starting at 2:01.

Council received an update on both programs, including summaries of their scope and an estimated timeline for public outreach and implementation.

Duke Street in Motion

As Alexandria's primary east-west corridor, Duke Street is essential to enabling people to move throughout our community.

In 2022 the Advisory Group determined two roadway alignments to be studied for each segment, and will focus next on curb features such as cycle tracks, mixed use paths, and expanded sidewalks in each segment.
