The storm wreaked havoc on the electrical system and some folks are still without power. The City of Richmond has opened two charging stations for residents unable to access power so that their electronic devices can be charged. The stations are open at Broad Rock (4820 Old Warwick Road) and our very own Westover Hills Richmond Public Library (1408 Westover Hills Blvd).

Those who want to use the temporary charging stations are reminded to following state COVID-19 requirements of wearing a mask and social distancing.

The Broad Rock and Westover Hills locations will remain open through 7 p.m. Tuesday evening.

Bad news for lovers of the annual Greek Festival which is around 30k of y’all. The following was posted on their Facebook page and website.

Due to the ongoing COVID Pandemic, the Richmond Greek Festival scheduled for June 3-6, 2021 has been canceled. We begin preparations for our Festival months in advance and with the current health climate, we are unable to do that while adhering to health and safety regulations.

However, we’re not giving up just yet– we’re exploring options to bring you a version of the Richmond Greek Festival you know and love later this year. Please stay tuned to our website and social media for updates.

We wish our friends, family, and the Richmond community good health and safety during this time.

Richmond BizSense.com Reporting Chipotle and 36 townhomes Planned for Stratford Hills

The planned development would go into the area around the former tattoo shop near Publix and Mexico.

This bit of news comes to us from Richmond BizSense.com:

Harper Associates is planning an expansion of the Shops at Stratford Hills, a retail center the company developed in the early 2000s.

Plans call for a new retail building to be occupied in part by Chipotle, and, if approved by the city, 36 townhomes on a roughly 3-acre plot next door at 6935 Forest Hill Ave.

Most of the land eyed for the townhomes is currently wooded, and the former Lock Stock & Barrel Tattoo building that sits on the site would be razed to make way for a new 6,500-square-foot, drive-thru-ready outparcel.

There is a catch.

In order to move forward with the expansion, Harper is seeking to revise the conditional use permit it was granted from the city when initially developing the center. Its application was filed with the city last month.
