PHOTOS: Picture Day on T-Pot Bridge

What did you do during your lunch hour? We went to the river with our fellow Richmonders.

Bike Walk RVA invited everyone down to the new T. Tyler Potterfield bridge for a group photo (we’ll share it when it’s out) and we took them up on their offer and took a few snapshots of our own.

Prior to the 12:30 PM photo the bridge had a steady stream of walkers, runners and bikers. As you’ll see during the photo shoot rafters, stand-up paddleboarders, and kayakers were added to the mix. It was a bit brisk but a good time and wonderful to see everyone checking out latest addition to our waterfront.t_pot_4

Weigh in on Richmond’s New Downtown Plan Tonight

A public meeting is today at 6:00 PM to learn about and share your thoughts on the recently released draft City Center small area plan.

Details from Partnership for Smarter Growth

Please join us at a public meeting today at 6:00PM to learn about and share your thoughts on the recently released draft City Center small area plan. You can attend the meeting in person at the Greater Richmond Convention Center or online via Microsoft Teams. Go to the PDR website to learn more.
City staff drafted this plan in response to the failed Navy Hill redevelopment proposal, and it encompasses largely the same area, while this time recommending demolition of the Coliseum, without replacement. This isn’t the only big change.
The plan focuses on how to create a vibrant urban neighborhood in an area marked by a number of vacant city owned parcels, and includes proposed improvements to bicycle, pedestrian, and transit infrastructure, at least 20% affordable housing, and new amenities, including a linear park, a pedestrian plaza, and outdoor dining space. Included are protected bike lanes, a new transit transfer center, and a new City Hall at a new location. The latter is quite a surprise to many of us and we would like to learn more. We also want to understand if a Transfer Center located two blocks from the Pulse BRT, makes sense.
To date, the primary input has been limited to online surveys due to the pandemic, so we hope there will be more opportunities for public involvement in planning the future of our downtown.Take a look at the draft plan and see all of the proposed changes in store for the City Center area, and leave comments on the interactive PDF, by following this link
Do you like the public spaces and are they enough? The location of the transit transfer center? Moving City Hall into a new building at a new location?
We hope you can attend tonight and also send in comments. Thank you for your involvement in shaping the future of our city and region.
