Lower Russell Road Traffic Committee Operational: The NRCA Traffic Committee has worked with neighbors along Russell Road to form an independent committee to assist with a program for slowing traffic along lower Russell Road. This committee is working with Alexandria's "Complete Streets Program" coordinator Hillary Poole and Vice-Mayor Allison Silberberg to engage the neighborhood in support of the traffic control program. We're aware that traffic law enforcement has already increased and specific permanent options are planned. Anyone interested in this committee can contact the NRCA Traffic Committee Chairs, Bruce Snapp or Chuck Kent for further information.
Citizenship and Scholarship Awards: Keep an eye out at your local school graduations; NRCA representatives will be presenting citizenship and scholarship awards to outstanding students at T.C. Williams High School, George Washington Middle Schools #1 and #2, Douglas MacArthur Elementary School, George Mason Elementary School and Charles Barrett Elementary School. NRCA has contributed to the Alexandria Scholarship Fund and to the T.C. Williams Alcohol-Free Graduation Celebration.

Community Input for Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan
We want to hear from you!
As part of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan Update, the City is seeking community input on existing walking and bicycle issues and needs, and ideas for improving the environment for walking and biking. An online survey and interactive map can be accessed from the project webpagewww.alexandriava.gov/pedbikeplan. The survey and map are available in English and Spanish and will be available for input through early October 2014.
In addition, the project will host a public meeting on September 30 from 7pm to 9pm at the Minnie Howard School Library, 3801 W. Braddock Road.
The update of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Master Plan will include an evaluation of existing conditions, constraints and needs, as well as a review of existing policies, goals and objectives. The plan will identify short and long-term projects to make it safer and easier for people to walk and bike in Alexandria. As part of this project, Complete Street Design Guidelines are being developed to ensure that Alexandria’s streets are serving the needs of all users.
