The Commission was established by City Council on April 14, 2012, and replaces the Waterfront Committee, which was founded in 1989. The Commission meets the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 am at City Hall Room 2000, 301 King Street, unless otherwise indicated on the agenda. The public is welcome. For additional information, call 703.746.5500.
The Waterfront Commission routinely receives staff reports from various City departments, including Recreation, Parks, and Cultural Activities; Planning and Zoning; Transportation and Environmental Services; General Services; and the Police Department. Lieutenant Don Hayes , the Waterfront Committee's Community Police Liaison Officer, may be reached regarding non-emergency Waterfront related public safety issues at email@example.com. In an emergency, call 911 for immediate assistance.
