Alexandria, Virginia has RSS Feeds available

My city of Alexandria, VA has a couple of RSS feeds available. They’re not much quite yet (DASH bus service notifications and city press releases), but there is the promise of more.

 What I’d like to see next? Daily crime reports and history and recreation news.

Alexandria also has a very impressive collection of online GIS applications that give you multiple views of the city.

It’s nice to see towns becoming more technologically adept, especially with their communications options. I already get some city news via e-mail, but I would prefer RSS.
