Shockoe Alliance to Hold Small Area Plan Development Workshop December 4, 2019

The Shockoe Alliance will hold its next community meeting from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on December 4, 2019 at the Main Branch of the Richmond Public Library, 101 E. Franklin Street. The community workshop is the next step toward the development of the Small Area Plan and implementation strategy for the Shockoe area.

This meeting will focus on consideration of plan recommendations resulting from prior public input, featuring interactive group discussions regarding top planning priorities and a real-time voting exercise to gauge support for each key planning theme. Community leaders, city staff and members of the Shockoe Alliance will serve as presenters and discussion facilitators. The results of this meeting will serve as the basis for preparation of the Draft Small Area Plan for public review in early 2020.  

The Shockoe Alliance is charged with guiding the design and implementation of concepts and recommendations for the future of Shockoe. Its ultimate goal is to create an innovative space of memorialization, learning and transformation, all while protecting the area’s cultural and historic heritage.
