I'm looking forward to the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the new Community Center in the Lee District. In addition to providing accessible recreation, youth programs, and other services, the community center is also the site of the Workforce Innovation Skills Hub (W.I.S.H.), a workforce training and development center.
Fairfax County purchased the facility, originally the Mount Vernon Athletic Club, in May 2020 with plans to establish a multi-service center to meet the immediate needs of neighborhoods in the Buckman Road area on the west side of Richmond Highway in Alexandria. The county made several improvements to the facility, including improving accessibility, capital renewal, safety, and community use updates.
