The amendment proposed by the Council would amend the Master Plan by replacing the Transportation Master Plan Chapter of the Master Plan with the Alexandria Mobility Plan (AMP), which was adopted by the Council on October 16th of this year. The AMP focuses on expanding high-quality transportation choices so transportation in the city continues to serve the needs of residents, businesses, and visitors as the region grows and new technology impacts the ways we get around. The community-driven planning process raised several priorities including reducing congestion, improving transit, cut-through traffic, and making the transportation system safer. This input informed a set of recommendations that will address these needs and improve access to safe and convenient travel choices for all Alexandria.
