Good morning.

As many of you may know, the Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities is currently undertaking an assessment and analysis of the City of Alexandria’s aquatics facilities to determine future strategies for meeting community aquatics needs. RPCA is working with the consulting team of Kimley-Horn/Consilman-Hunsaker and Brailsford and Dunlavey to produce a Master Plan for Aquatics Facilities. The consultant team visited the City at the end of March and met with some of you as they reviewed the current facilities and programs.

As stakeholders with an interest in Alexandria’s aquatics facilities, we would like to invite you to attend a Stakeholder Update presented by the consultants on Wednesday, May 4 at 7:00 PM. Please hold the date and time with location to be determined. If you are interested in attending, please respond to this email by April 22, as the number of attendees will help us plan for the appropriate space.  This presentation will be a great opportunity for the team to gather feedback from key stakeholders, and for each of you to learn about the consultant’s findings and different aquatic options the City may consider.

A draft agenda for the meeting is provided below.
