Rose Fellowship Panel findings on a Shared Vision for Shockoe Bottom

The city has struggled for decades on how to manage Shockoe Bottom in a manner that is both respectful to the history and also financially feasible. The search for answers continues.

Late last week the Rose Fellowship Panel presented their findings and recommendations on how the city can move forward to protect and honor the unique history of Shockoe Bottom.

“We’ve had a number of experts and advisors here from around the country to take a look at some of the land use issues we face in the city,” Mayor Levar M. Stoney stated to a full room at Main Street Station. “And although we may face some challenges, we have an opportunity to remember and honor the enslaved Africans who built this city and also celebrate the vibrancy of Shockoe Valley.”
