Lots of Trail Improvements – First Power Plant Redevelopment Public Meeting on February 11th

On Thursday, February 11 at 6 p.m., Hilco Redevelopment Partners (HRP) will begin a series of online community engagement opportunities regarding the transformation of the former Potomac River Generating Site (PRGS) in the Old Town North area of Alexandria. HRP will seek to implement the approved Old Town North Small Area Plan, adopted by City Council in June of 2017.

The Old Town North Small Area Plan contains multiple improvements to the Mount Vernon Trail including additional trail access from Slaters Lane, filling the trail gap on East Abingdon, creating a separate pedestrian trail on the waterfront and establishing a linear park with multiuse paths on the current railroad tracks.

This first online engagement opportunity will introduce the community to the HRP Alexandria team and its consultant team who will be working with the community throughout the redevelopment process. The community will be invited to provide feedback and ask questions throughout this community engagement process. Further information on this project can be found on the City’s website and will be made available on the HRP project website soon after February 11.
