For full disclosure purposes, I’m obligated to let you know that I serve on the board for Friends of the Pump House so definitely have a vested interest in this project. That being said it’s crucial that the public’s voice be heard and the more folks involved in the process the better.
For over a year the Friends of the Pump House have been working diligently to improve the Pump House. Projects have included, securing the building from unlawful entry, working on storage solutions for tools and/or artifacts, conducting tours, general repairs, and maintaining the grounds. There is however much, much work to be done.
Eventually, the hope is that building could once more be open to the public and become an even more vital piece of what makes Richmond so great. What role the Pump House will play in the future is still being decided and you’ve got a chance to voice your opinion on Tuesday.
