What's Next Alexandria Community Dialogue June 24!

what's_next_logoWe've made it to the finish line! What's Next - the City's initiative collaborate with the community on improving and expanding public participation in City decision-making processes - has been a rewarding experience for us. We hope it has been for you, too! Since September 2012, What's Next has involved more than 2000 participants in 3 Community Dialogues and 3 online activities. 

Come join us on June 24th for the final Community Dialogue before to kick-off the City's implementation. You will have an opportunity to: 

1) review the draft elements of the Civic Engagement handbook 

2) work collaboratively to develop a communications and outreach infrastructure to ensure that more residents can be meaningfully engaged in public decision-making in the City. 

The draft elements of the civic engagement handbook will be posted for community review on the What’s Next Alexandria website in advance of the June 24th. Opportunity for comment will continue through part of the summer, and City Council will review the document in the fall.   

Please attend and encourage your neighbors to join you at the Community Dialogue on June 24th from 7-9pm at First Baptist Church, 2932 King Street.  

If you cannot attend the meeting in person, the City will offer an opportunity to participate online in real time via a “Virtual Table.” For more information about the meeting and the virtual table, visit http://alexandriava.gov/WhatsNext.
