Alexandria from overhead

A view from over Alexandria coming in from the west.  It doesn't take long to see how intertwined the city is with the local lakes and waterways when overhead.

The City of Alexandria’s Comprehensive Plan update, titled Alexandria 2040, is now available for viewing and comment.  The Plan, which will guide City decision-making over the next twenty years, is a set of interconnected vision and policy ideas that the community lifted up during the more than two-year engagement process. These community ideas helped the City establish priorities and will guide how the Alexandria community develops over the next 20 years. The document includes 15 goals that articulate the Plan’s intent with an overarching theme: Alexandria’s growth must be managed so the city works for everyone.

Alexandria 2040 can be found on the City’s website:  The website also contains a link to Frequently Asked Questions, and a stand-alone proposed Future Land Use Map. Comments on the Plan can be made directly to City Planner Mike Weber at, through November 29th.
