Hello and welcome to Alexandria!
The City of Alexandria is now designated as a Certified City of Ethics by the Kentucky League of Cities. On May 17th, City Council members and members of the Ethics Board completed the KLC Certified City of Ethics Program, conducted by Andrea Shindlebower, KLC Personnel Services Specialist. By completing this program, city officials agree to subscribe to ethics principles and pledge to serve the public interest, be ethical and professional, communicate effectively and respectively, fulfill duties and responsibilities of holding public office, be fiscally responsible with city resources, and create an environment of honesty, openness, and integrity.
Alexandria is a great place to live, work, or shop. We’re just about 30 minutes from downtown Cincinnati and the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky International Airport, less than that to great shopping, either at regional malls or our own Village Green Shopping Center. Of course, Alexandria has dozens of specialty retailers and good restaurants as well.
Our school systems, both public and private, are among the best. We’re just 15 minutes from Northern Kentucky University and within easy commuting distance of the University of Cincinnati, Xavier University, and Thomas More College, just to name a few of the educational opportunities.
And with all of that going for us, perhaps the best and most amazing thing is we’re still enjoying a laid back, almost rural community with friendly neighbors and beautiful vistas.
Our tag line “Where the City meets the Country” is not just a slogan. It really captures the idea that we have every amenity available to us, but we can escape to the peace and quiet just by coming home.
