Background

The Alexandria City Council approved the Braddock Metro Neighborhood Plan on March 15, 2008.The framework and recommendations in the Braddock Metro Neighborhood Plan are based on seven guiding principles.

  1. Create a sense of place/neighborhood identity, vitality and diversity.
  2. Provide walkable neighborhoods that are secure and feel safe.
  3. Establish a variety of community serving, usable open spaces.
  4. Encourage community-serving retail and services.
  5. Promote mixed-income housing and follow an open, fair and inclusive process to deconcentrate public housing.
  6. Manage multi-modal transportation, parking and road infrastructure.
  7. Achieve varying and transitional heights and scales.

The Braddock East Master Plan, approved by City Council on October 18, 2008, expands upon the fifth of these principles; to promote mixed income communities through the redevelopment of the existing public housing sites within the Braddock East planning area.

On February 2, 2009, City Council established the Braddock Metro Neighborhood Plan Implementation Advisory Group (BIAG) to assist City staff in implementing the recommendations of both the Braddock Metro Neighborhood and Braddock East plans.

On June 9, 2009, City Council adopted the establishment of the Braddock Open Space and the Braddock Community Amenities Fund Accounts and approved a formula for developer contributions. A link to City Council's action docket is available by clicking here.
