Alexandria mayor rebuffs criticism of waterfront plan

Thursday - 5/17/2012, 6:36am  ET

Alexandria mayoral candidates are squaring off about the environmental sustainability of the controversial waterfront plan, NBC Washington reported.

Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille is one of the strongest supporters of a plan that would increase allowable density at three sites along the waterfront. He dismisses criticism that the plan is a threat to the health of the Potomac River.

This week, former vice mayor and independent candidate Andrew MacDonald called the proposal a threat to the health of the river, especially in the wake of a recent report labeling the Potomac as "the most endangered river in America" because of pollution and development.
