Ramsey Homes Symposium: "Historic Preservation, Community, and Architecture of Public Housing in Alexandria

On Thursday, February 11, 2021 from 9am - 4:30pm,  the City of Alexandria hosted a virtual community conversation on the former Ramsey Homes - construction of the former World War II era buildings, segregationist practices, and the African-American residents. Originally built as temporary housing for African-American war industry workers in the 1940s, the homes later served as permanent housing and became part of the fabric of the Parker-Gray community. The symposium featured prominent speakers in the areas of historic preservation, American studies, affordable housing, architecture; as well as featured stories of the residents who lived in Ramsey Homes from 1940s - 1950s. The event concluded with a virtual site tour of Lineage at North Patrick Street. Symposium Agenda 

A recording the symposium can be viewed here.


Resolution 2876

In April 2019, the City Council and ARHA Board of Commissioners adopted Resolution 2876, which supersedes Resolution 830. The resolution reflects the continued joint commitment of the City and ARHA to replace 1,150 units of public and publicly-assisted housing and provide tenant protections to any tenant displaced during any future redevelopment activities. In 2018, the public was engaged in a consultation process and the Resolution 830 Working Group was convened to provide guidance to the updated joint commitment. In addition to reaffirming the partners' joint commitments, Resolution 2876 establishes the blueprint for both agencies to continue to work together to provide affordable housing resources to the City's most vulnerable residents.
