Jones Point Park Construction Community Liaison Group Meeting Scheduled for Thursday, January 27, 2011
To ensure that construction activities continue with little disruption, and to provide a forum for open dialogue with the surrounding community, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT), with participation of the National Park Service and City of Alexandria, has created a Community Liaison Information Group on Jones Point Park Construction. The first meeting of the liaison group is scheduled for Thursday, January 27, 7 p.m. at the Lee Center, 1108 Jefferson St.
The purpose of the meeting is to allow for liaison members and the general public to ask questions and to be briefed on ongoing Jones Point Park construction activities. The meeting is open to the public and will include representatives from the project’s managing parties - VDOT and the National Park Service - as well as staff from the City of Alexandria.
The Community Liaison Information Group is comprised of representatives from resident groups that may be most impacted by ongoing work at Jones Point Park. In addition, group members are identified as direct points of contact for gathering information on neighborhood concerns or questions, and will have direct contact to VDOT to address such items as they arise.
