Registration is closed

Meet and Greet for City Mayoral and Council Democratic Candidates.

Mayoral Candidates will be given 5 minutes each to address the 2 questions below:

Question 1

Transportation: The Eisenhower Partnership supports extending the economic development accomplishments on the east end of Eisenhower Avenue to the west end of Eisenhower Avenue. One recommendation offered in the course of the Eisenhower West Plan meetings to grow this economic activity westward is to move Transit Corridor B from Duke Street over to Eisenhower Avenue. What are your thoughts about the impact this change would have on Eisenhower Avenue? As Mayor, would you support high-capacity transit on Eisenhower Avenue?

Question 2

Industrial uses: There has been discussion of the importance of retaining an area for industrial use in the City of Alexandria. The western part of the Eisenhower Avenue corridor is one of the last areas of industrial uses in the City. The City has already made a commitment to keep Covanta on Eisenhower for the long term.  Should the Eisenhower West Small Area Plan continue to accommodate light industrial uses in Eisenhower West; and if so, where and what kind would be appropriate?
