Today at 1:00pm, the City of Alexandria will be formally recognized by the U.S. Conference of Mayors and The National Association of Realtors (NAR) as one of only six 2008 Ambassador Cities nationwide.
Ambassador Cities are selected on the basis of innovative, successful, and effective programs for promoting home ownership and affordable housing opportunities in the community.
The City of Alexandria’s recognition comes from its successful partnership with The Northern Virginia Association of Realtors (NVAR) to promote affordable homeownership for low and moderate income families.
Mayor Bill Euille, a Del Ray resident, noted “For individuals, achieving home ownership is an important step in attaining real economic self-sufficiency. These important initiatives also serve to preserve our diversity and stablize our community against the current wave of foreclosures.”
The other five 2008 Ambassador Cities are:
- Allentown, PA
- Ashville, NC
- Bowling Green, KY
- Irvine, CA
- Richmond, VA
The agents listed here can tell you more about affordable housing in each of these cities.
