~It is now Summer and grass is growing and people are mowing! Please note that the City of Alexandria has an ordinance that states, “it shall be unlawful to sweep, throw, or otherwise deposit sweepings, litter, or other matter from private property onto a sidewalk or from a sidewalk onto a roadway or into the gutter or catch basin thereof . . .” (Sec. 91.35, Alexandria Code of Ordinances) Also, SD1 asks us to remember that pollutants and debris washed into catch basins are carried to nearby waterways. Once in creeks and rivers, chemicals, yard debris, litter and dirt can degrade the quality of the water we rely on for drinking water and recreation. Basins and drains clogged by debris also can lead to storm water flooding that creates safety hazards and costly property damage. Thank you!

Hello and Welcome to Alexandria!
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.
