ALEXANDRIA, VA. - From The City of Alexandria: The King Street Corridor Initiative, a partnership focusing on beautification, programming and marketing of Alexandria's historic downtown corridor and spearheaded by the City of Alexandria and Visit Alexandria, is pleased to announce that since the initial June 2018 announcement of the program's Founding Funders, several new private sector partners have pledged their support. The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce joined at the Community Contributor level while Asana increased their support from Neighborhood Partner to Lead Partner. Additionally, Augie's Mussel House and Urbano 116 joined as Neighborhood Partners and the Old Town Business and Professional Association also pledged a financial contribution to the initiative. The initiative, valued at nearly $1 million largely from the City of Alexandria's budget, includes Visit Alexandria's $175,000 fundraising effort from the private sector.

"The Chamber is so pleased to support this public-private partnership to enhance Alexandria's competitiveness," said Virginia "Gin" Kinneman, chair of the board of directors for the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce.

Significant strides toward increased beautification, programming and marketing are underway, including new flower baskets that were installed throughout King Street in August and additional maintenance staff added to keep King Street clean.
