The Eisenhower Partnership's mission is to make the Valley a better place to live, work and play.
The Eisenhower Partnership Board has been working hard to bring to the Valley what the work force and the residents of the Valley want.
On our website you will find information about the Partnership and the Valley, including current events, new construction, recent openings and upcoming events. You will also find a blog to share anything that might be of interest to people in the Valley. Coming soon: space available in the Valley, a directory (contact directory only available to members) and membership sign-up.

Old News: Eisenhower Partnership Candidates Forum

Eisenhower Valley corridor. City Council

Questions for Mayoral Candidates
Transportation: The Eisenhower Partnership supports
extending the economic development accomplishments on the east end of
Eisenhower Avenue to the west end of Eisenhower Avenue. One recommendation offered in the course of
the Eisenhower West Plan meetings to grow this economic activity westward is to
move Transit Corridor B from Duke Street over to Eisenhower Avenue. What are your thoughts about the impact this
change would have on Eisenhower Avenue?
As Mayor, would you support high-capacity transit on Eisenhower Avenue?
uses: There has been discussion of the
importance of retaining an area for industrial use in the City of Alexandria.
The western part of the Eisenhower Avenue corridor is one of the last areas of
industrial uses in the City. The City has
already made a commitment to keep Covanta on Eisenhower for the long term. Should the Eisenhower West Small Area Plan
continue to accommodate light industrial uses in Eisenhower West; and if so,
where and what kind would be appropriate?
Your input is needed!
Please review the following presentation from the Planning Commission's work session on the EW Small Area Plan. Send comments/concerns to Frank Cole (email@example.com) or Radhika Mohan (firstname.lastname@example.org)

The National Science Foundation will be moving to the Hoffman Center at the start of the calendar year of 2017. Groundbreaking occurred on January 27th, 2014.
The new headquarters is to be built on the parking lot next to the AMC Hoffman Center 22 Movie Theater just across the street from the Eisenhower Avenue Metro station.
The NSF has a $7.3 billion fiscal 2013 budget. The City of Alexandria will receive approximately $50 million in tax revenues over the 15 year lease even after all the tax incentives the NSF receives. The relocation should result in more than $83 million in annual spending (direct and indirect) in the City of Alexandria. The NSF has more than 30,000 site visits per year, many of the visitors serving on scientific review panels, yeilding 90,000 nightly hotel room bookings per year. In addition, the NSF relocation is expected to add 4,273 new stable jobs and 847 temporary jobs.
- The Valley is served by 3 Metro stops: Eisenhower, Van Dorn and King Street.
