City delays contributing to event center study

Email News Alerts

How much would an event center benefit Alexandria?

Would the economic punch from a center justify the costs?

What kind of events would it bring here and how many people would it draw?


Those are the kind of questions a committee hopes to answer as it explores the possibility of expanding the Runestone Community Center or building a new event center somewhere else in the city.

But it will take a study and money - $50,000 - to find out.
