Alexandria’s Old Town North Charrette
The City of Alexandria will sponsor a week long charrette November 16-20 to kick off the Old Town North (OTN) Small Area Plan update. Planning sessions and activities will be held throughout the week and include three community meetings open to the public.
The last update for OTN was 1992, and there has been a resurgence of development activity in the area in the last few years. While there are 340 public housing units located in OTN, there are no market affordable units. This small area plan review presents an opportunity to increase the supply of housing that’s affordable, especially with the provision of increased density that is certain to be a part of any final recommendations.
