Hosted by civic groups in the East End 7th District, the meetings will include presentation, discussion and review of draft plans written as a result of the seven-day Richmond Nine Mile Road/25th Street Corridor Revitalization Plan - Community Planning “Charrette” held in June of this year. These meetings are being held to provide additional community review and input.
The Richmond Nine Mile Road/25th Street Corridor Revitalization Plan - Community Planning “Charrette” was held in the East End 7th District during a seven day period from June 1-7, 2010. This series of community meetings involved nearly 2,000 residents and stakeholders and included Councilwoman Newbille, Mayor Dwight Jones, Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority (RRHA), and Bon Secours Richmond Community Hospital. The goal of these meetings is to create a vision and plan for the revitalization of the Nine Mile Road/25th Street Corridor in Richmond’s Historic East End.
Councilwoman Newbille hosted the first post-Charrette draft review community meeting on August 7, 2010.
