City of Alexandria Waterfront Commission

The Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities commissions and committees compose a formal system through which citizens can advise City Council on issues affecting the City. All meetings are open to the public. Position vacancies are advertised in the local newspapers and through civic associations. Applicants for commission and committee vacancies may obtain application forms and additional information by calling the Office of the City Clerk at 703.746.4550, or by visiting the Boards & Commissions Application online.  Click here for the Waterfront Commission roster.

The purpose of the Alexandria Waterfront Commission is to advise the City Council and staff on issues related to Alexandria's historic Potomac River waterfront, and advise on implementation of the Waterfront Small Area Plan. The Commission is composed of 21 members representing a particular neighborhood, community organization, or City committee. 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 Sister Cities Conference Room, 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 don.hayes@alexandriava.gov. In an emergency, call 911 for immediate assistance.

Waterfront Commission Staff Liaison: Jack Browand, Division Chief, Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities (jack.browand@alexandriava.gov)
