Dear Roundtable Members,

The City of Richmond is hosting a second public meeting  regarding the 
Riverfront Plan,
please view the following announcement:
City of Richmond
Planning & Development Review

Richmond Riverfront Plan Public Meeting Tue., Oct. 18
City Hosts 2nd Public Forum on the Richmond Riverfront Plan

Date: Tuesday, October 18, 2011
Location: Virginia War Memorial, 621 South Belvidere
Time: 6pm

The City of Richmond invites the public to the second Public Forum on
the Richmond Riverfront Plan on Tuesday, October 18 at 6:00 PM at the
Virginia War Memorial, located at 621 South Belvidere Street near the
Lee Bridge. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Building on the inventory and analysis of initial site conditions in the
project area and input from the public, the Consultant Team from
Hargreaves Associates has begun to develop initial strategic options
that address the recognized development opportunities and constraints.
At this second public forum, the project team will present these options
followed by a public dialogue on alternative growth scenarios,
preferences, and priorities for Richmond's riverfront.

The design alternatives will present the fundamental characteristics of
pursuing different growth scenarios that may include:

 *   status quo
 *   a recreation and cultural tourism lead strategy
 *   an ecology lead strategy
 *   a transport, urban design and place-making lead strategy
 *   a development market lead strategy

The public discourse will help guide the development of the draft plan
that will be presented at a third public forum on Tuesday, December 13, 2011.

The presentation from the first forum is available 

The Virginia War Memorial will be open at 5:15 for anyone who would like
to arrive early to see the facility and exhibitions.

For more information, email James Hill at:
james.hill@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx or call 804-646-7552.

Parking is available at the Memorial, the adjacent Virginia Housing
Development Authority, and along Second Street.
