Post Your Feedback Today!

Government cannot solve community problems without community input, and The City of Alexandria needs your input now! Over the past year, members of the community together with City staff, appointed, and elected officials participated in the What’s Next Alexandria Initiative. The What’s Next Alexandria initiative works to gather information and develop guidelines for improving and expanding civic engagement in Alexandria.

Community collaboration over the course of the What’s Next Alexandria process resulted in Alexandria’s Civic Engagement Handbook, a guide for future public decision-making processes in the city. The Handbook will be used by community members and City staff who will work together to improve or expand:

  • Understanding about how to participate in public decision-making in Alexandria.
  • Knowledge about planning and development in Alexandria.
  • Skills to participate in civic engagement processes in a meaningful way.
  • Participation to include a broad representation of our diverse city.
  • Solutions for cooperative, productive, and sustainable public decision-making.


A complete draft of the Civic Engagement Handbook is now available, and The City would like community feedback on how the Handbook can best serve Alexandria. By clicking the Take Action link, you can read the full Handbook and leave your own comments and suggestions. Your feedback will be used by The City to inform the final draft of the Handbook.


Please help the City of Alexandria create a Civic Engagement Handbook that will best serve our community. Take Action today and shape the future of civic engagement in Alexandria!
