The next meeting to discuss Richmond’s Master Plan which impacts us too many ways to list, is happening Tuesday, October 28th, at the Patrick Henry School of Science and Arts (3411 Semmes Ave). The discussion kicks off at 6 PM.
The City of Richmond Department of Planning and Development Review invites you to continue the conversation about the city-wide master plan update, Richmond 300: A Guide for Growth. Last fall, Richmonders shared their vision and big ideas for the future of the city, and now is your opportunity to hear and comment on how these ideas have been incorporated into a vision and goals for the city in 2037 and into the draft land uses, transportation connections, and strategies needed to help reach the vision and goals.
Attend a Richmond 300 Forum to provide your thoughts on the draft content. Each Forum will include a 30-min presentation and 60-min of Q&A and open house. All Forums will present the same information. Children are welcome to attend the forums. Spanish-language translators will be available. If participants have a disability and require accommodation in order to fully participate in the forum, email [email protected] by September 23 to arrange accommodations.
Richmond 300: A Guide for Growth is the name of the City’s new Master Plan, which is under development. Richmond 300 will establish a 20-year vision for the city’s growth and be developed with extensive community engagement.

Westover Hills Elementary Teachers and Staff to “Parade” Through the Neighborhood
Don’t call the cops this parade will be from the safe distance of their autos and there will be no direct contact with any students.
Friday don’t be surprised if you see a long line of cars snaking through your neighborhood. It’s just local teachers and staff saying goodbye for now to their students.
From Westover Hills Elementary:
Teachers and staff are going to PARADE all through our school’s zone tomorrow morning to say “Hi” and “Goodbye” 😢 to students at their homes from the responsible distance of their cars. They expect to be in our neighborhoods from about 9:20-11:00 AM. If you are home (like you should be!), step out on the porch and give a wave and a “thank you” (and don’t freak out if you see a whole bunch of cars driving slowly through the neighborhood in a long line)”.
South of the James Farmers Market will be a Drive-thru Farmers Market this Saturday
Drive-Thru Market on Saturday, March 28th, 9 am – 1 pm. Pre-orders ONLY. Customers will not leave vehicles.
There will be a Drive-thru South of the James Market on Saturday, March 28th, from 9 AM to 1 PM. There are some very important rules to follow for this to work. Pre-orders only from the specific vendor. Those vendors might have some of their own rules, follow them. Customers will not leave their cars. Reach out to the specific vendor for what they have and place your pre-order.
For this to work there can’t be cars just cruising the vendors to see what they can buy. Pre-order from the vendors directly. Most vendors are posting what they’ll have and how to pre-order at the South of the James Farmers Market Facebook.
It will be interesting to see how this works out with keeping traffic flowing and how many cars show up. I’m sure greater minds than I have a plan in place. There will be some hiccups, be patient, you will get your bread and salsa.
Councilperson Stephanie Lynch taking Monthly Meeting to Facebook Live
The 5th District first Facebook Live meeting is on Thursday, March 26 at 6pm. The agenda will include COVID information, businesses relief efforts, extended tax deadlines, and community outreach/volunteering while practicing social distancing.
Since meeting in person is obviously off the table 5th District Councilperson Stephanie Lynch is bringing her meeting to Facebook Live. This will be happening tomorrow, Thursday, March 26th, at 6 PM. It’s also worth reminding everyone that this is uncharted territory for most and there will be technology hiccups, leaders won’t have all the answers, and patience is more valuable (only slightly) than toilet paper.
We will be attempting our first Facebook Live meeting on Thursday, March 26 at 6pm. The agenda will include COVID information, businesses relief efforts, extended tax deadlines, and community outreach/volunteering while practicing social distancing.
Please comment in the event if you have a specific topic you would like covered. If we can not get to it we will try to include it in the April newsletter and on social media.
We’ll be loading a bunch of PSAs in this event for review and sharing.
We are thinking of all of you.
Stephanie & Amy
