Richmond Riverfront Plan Projects Public Forum

The City’s Department of Planning and Development Review invites the public to attend a 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.

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.

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.
