Alexandria Master Plan (Small Area Plans & Citywide Chapters)

The Master Plan is made up of Small Area Plans (SAPs) covering neighborhoods throughout the City, plus substantive chapters on topics of citywide relevancy, such as Historic Preservation, Urban Design, Transportation, and Open Space. The Alexandria Master Plan was adopted by the City Council on June 13, 1992, and chapters are updated and added on an ongoing basis as needed through Master Plan Amendments. As amendments are incorporated into the text of an area plan or substantive chapter, the revised document will be posted here.
