City Invites Public to the Richmond Riverfront Plan Projects Public Forum on February 18


The City’s Department of Planning and Development Review invites the public to attend the rescheduled Richmond Riverfront Plan public forum on Tuesday, February 18 at 7 p.m. at the Virginia War Memorial, 621 South Belvidere. The meeting will detail two of the Richmond Riverfront Plan projects: Brown’s Island Dam Walk and Chapel Island Trail. This meeting was originally scheduled for January 21, but it was postponed due to inclement weather.

The Brown’s Island Dam Walk will re-purpose an existing historical dam structure into a pedestrian and bicycle route that will connect Brown’s Island on the north bank to the Floodwall and Manchester neighborhood on the south bank. The Chapel Island Trail will build a universally accessible route along the north bank of the river from 14th Street to Great Shiplock Park.

What:         Richmond Riverfront Plan Projects Public Forum
When:       Tuesday, February 18 at 7 p.m.
Where:      Virginia War Memorial
                 621 South Belvidere Street

The meeting will open with a concise overview of the City’s Riverfront Plan. The firm leading the design of both projects, Hargreaves and Associates, will make a presentation of the schematic designs at 7 p.m., with the balance of the meeting open to audience questions and comments.

Parking is available at the Virginia War Memorial and along Second Street.
