Stormwater Utility Proposed by City

Facing federal and state unfunded mandates on stormwater management and the need to protect and improve Alexandria’s waterways, the City of Alexandria is studying a potential stormwater fee to be imposed on both commercial and residential property owners.  The fee proposal will be discussed at a number of community and business events this fall, including one to be sponsored by the Eisenhower Partnership.  Currently, staff is proposing to base the fee on the amount of impervious surface at a property, measured in Equivalent Residential Units (ERUs) worth 2,062 square feet.  The currently proposed fee per ERU ranges from $120 to $145 per year.  City staff plans to do further work to refine the cost per ERU.  For further information, see the City’s website at   

An updated presentation by the City staff is available here: Proposed Stormwater Management Fee_NAIOP_10.11.16.pdf.

The City has announced some public input sessions:

On Monday, October 17, the City of Alexandria’s Environmental Policy Commission will host a public meeting to present the framework of a proposed Stormwater Management Fee and receive feedback from the public. The meeting will be held at City Hall, 301 King St., from 7:30 to 9 p.m., in the Council Workroom on the 2nd Floor.

In addition, a meeting to specifically discuss planned retrofits to Ben Brenman pond at Cameron Station is planned for:

Eisenhower West Landmark Van Dorn Implementation

Work has begun on implementing the recommendations of the Eisenhower West and Landmark Van Dorn Small Area Plans!  The Eisenhower Partnership was instrumental in obtaining the Victory Center as the location for the first meeting of the City’s Advisory Group – a meeting attended by the 14 group members, as well as numerous City staff and a general audience of 20-25 people. 

After reviewing the key aspects of each of the two plans, City staff noted that the City was currently engaged in procuring two analyses important to the plans; the first is an air quality simulation of what would happen to emissions from the Covanta waste-to-energy plant if the 20 or so tall buildings envisioned in the Eisenhower West plan were to be built.  The second is a very important analysis of the capital needs that follow from the recommendations in the two plans – roads, sewer improvements, stream bank stabilization, and the like.  The first study could potentially be concluded in the next four months, but the second study will take much longer – particularly since the

City has to go through standard procurement procedures and a consultant may not even be selected for several months.

Also at this meeting, City staff went over the status of several developer and tenant proposals in the area.  The next meeting will be held in November.  The Eisenhower Partnership is being represented by EP Vice President Agn├Ęs Artemel.
