Summary Beginning in spring 2007, the City of Alexandria partnered with Virginia Tech’s Department of Urban Affairs and Planning to design and facilitate a new, strategic collaborative planning process, called Eco-City Alexandria, to create an Eco-City Charter and Environmental Action Plan to guide Alexandria toward sustainability. Alexandria’s Environmental Policy Commission is the project’s principal advisor along with representatives from the Alexandria City Council and City Staff. The Division Chief for Environmental Quality serves as the City’s project manager. In 2007, the Eco-City Alexandria team conducted an inventory of existing City programs and plans and examined best practices from across the country and around the world to create a Compendium of Model Programs and Practices.
