Basically, the community wants to preserve an eyesore that they failed to upkeep, maintain, or improve. The housing became an entitlement. They did not appreciate it when they had it for free, why would we believe that this would change now.


Alexandria's City Council will hear the case to demolish Ramsey Homes at its public hearing on 12 September. The Parker Gray Board of Architectural Review unanimously voted in April that this site meets four out of six criteria for preservation. These buildings tell an important chapter in the history of the Parker Gray neighborhood and deserve to be preserved - or is it only the history of the wealthy and famous that Alexandria City Council thinks it worth retaining? Time will tell.
