For Immediate Release: July 24, 2012
Mayor William D. Euille and members of Alexandria City Council appointed the Beauregard Rezoning Advisory Group to begin work on overseeing implementation of several components of the adopted Beauregard Small Area Plan. The Beauregard Rezoning Advisory Group held its first meeting on July 16, 2012.
The first task of the Beauregard Rezoning Advisory Group is to evaluate options for open space to purchase with the $1.5 million in BRAC-133/Department of Defense funding set aside for that purpose. Three potential open space locations are currently being evaluated:
The site of the future Town Center in the Beauregard Plan Area
Property located at Foster Avenue and Fairbanks Avenue
Property located at Polk Avenue and Pelham Street
The City of Alexandria is seeking additional nominations of sites for open space in the West End (properties west of Quaker Lane) through August 6, 2012, pursuant to an agreement with the Department of Defense. All nominations received by Monday, August 6 will be reviewed by the Advisory Group at their August meeting.
