West End Alexandria Patch to Launch

The newest Patch site will launch later this month. Sign up to be the first to hear about the launch here.

We heard your requests for a Patch website covering the entire city of Alexandria, and we're responding!

Patch plans to launch a new site for the West End of Alexandria in late September.

With a thriving business community, civic association and infrastructure and business development in progress, Alexandria residents and businesses will receive more local news coverage and a platform for community information and engagement.

Patch, a community-specific news, information and engagement platform, launched in Virginia in 2010. Patch.com currently reaches residents and businesses across 30 websites in our area from Leesburg to D.C. and as far south as Fredericksburg (and closer to home, in Del Ray, Old Town, Annandale and Kingstowne).

Patch started in 2008 with three sites in New Jersey and has grown to more than 850 sites nationwide. Patch is owned by AOL.

It Starts Now
