Participate: What’s Next Alexandria Online Event
Online survey will inform the next community dialogue on civic engagement principles.
The City of Alexandria and ACTion Alexandria are providing residents the opportunity to participate in “What’s Next Alexandria” online through Jan. 14.
The short online survey asks residents to “review the draft list of principle categories below and select those you think should be included in Alexandria’s Principles of Civic Engagement.”
Survey answers will be part of the discussion at the Second Community Dialogue at 7 p.m. Jan. 29 at First Baptist Church, 2932 King St. At the January dialogue, civic leaders will refine the principles and talk about ways to meet them.
Childcare and Spanish translations will be available for interested residents at the Jan. 29 meeting.
At the first meeting in November, Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille told residents that city officials knew residents had a very wide variety of opinions about the state and direction of the city.
“I can tell you that your voice does count, and that the whole goal of this initiative is to restore that trust and to create a civic engagement process that is not only meaningful and satisfying for you, but also makes sure that the community’s input and interest are reflected in every decision that we make,” Euille said.
