Alexandria Renew Enterprises and the City of Alexandria are proud to announce the establishment of the Stakeholder Advisory Group to monitor the implementation of RiverRenew.
Established through Alexandria City Council Resolution No. 2850, this 13-member body is comprised of a diverse group of citizens representing Alexandria neighborhoods, businesses, and environmental groups.
Selected volunteers will serve as ambassadors, reaching out to neighbors and community members to receive and share input. The RiverRenew Stakeholder Advisory Group will:
- Be an active and informed citizen group that provides diverse perspectives throughout various phases of RiverRenew’s implementation;
- Review and monitor program progress and provide diverse perspectives;
- Serve as spokespeople for RiverRenew in the community and leverage existing networks to communicate progress;
- Receive input from the public and represent community perspectives at meetings; and
- Provide recommendations regarding mitigation of community impacts.
With over 30 applications received as part of the process, AlexRenew and the City would like to express gratitude to all who applied. Appointments to the Stakeholder Advisory Group can be found below.
The Stakeholder Advisory Group represents a balanced and diverse group of citizens from Alexandria neighborhoods, businesses and environmental groups, with particular focus given to neighborhoods most directly impacted by the proposed construction.
