OTCA is a collective voice for residents of Old Town on important local issues. The OTCA’s mission since our founding in 1951 has been to preserve the historic and residential character of Old Town, something we can only accomplish with the informed and active participation and support our members.
OTCA needs your support and your assistance, as there are critical issues facing Old Town and OTCA’s continued emphasis on our historical roots and our preservation goals. Old Town is threatened in many ways, but mostly now by a lack of genuine interest on the part of our government in preserving and enhancing the wonderful historical and residential characteristics of Old Town that make it such a special place to visit and call home. We must strengthen our commitment to speaking out, and that is why we need YOU! We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you in September!

Join the Old Town Civic Association
Whether you are new to Alexandria, Virginia or have been in the community for years, we invite you to join us. OTCA has a special status in a city without ward politics; we are a collective voice for residents of Old Town on important local issues, and one respected by city government. The OTCA’s mission since our founding in 1951 has been to preserve the historic and residential character of Old Town, something we can only accomplish with the informed and active participation and support of resident members. OTCA is governed by Officers and a Board of Directors elected by the membership. The board and committees stay abreast of City issues that directly and indirectly affect Old Town and its neighbors, and communicate through our website, monthly newsletter, and emails to keep members informed of up-coming events. Board members represent Old Town residents' interests before City Council, the Planning Commission, the Board of Architectural Review, the Board of Zoning Appeals, and other policy-making bodies. OTCA representatives also sit on City commissions, committees, and boards. To contact us, see: Officers & Board
