Community Input Requested
The community is invited to provide input on design principles and strategies for the Potomac Yard Metrorail Station, and on the elements to be included in Potomac Yard Park and Potomac Greens Park, by visiting AlexEngage, the City’s online engagement forum.
Comments received by 11.59 PM on Sunday, November 8, will be compiled and discussed at the next Potomac Yard Metrorail Implementation Work Group (PYMIG) meeting on Monday, November 16 at 6:30 PM at the Charles Houston Recreation Center, located at 901 Wythe Street in Alexandria. This feedback will inform the conceptual design process for the Metrorail station and amendments to the parks that are needed to build the station.
Over the next several months, residents and other stakeholders are invited to provide input at public meetings and online via AlexEngage as the conceptual design is developed.
Regular project updates will be given to the Alexandria Planning Commission, Parks and Recreation Commission, Board of Architectural Review, and City Council. The public process will be supported by a design team consisting of consultants and staff from the City, Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), and the National Park Service.
