Hi neighbors, As the city moves forward towards a Phase 1 reopening, there have been suggestions around allowing outdoor dining to expand into parking lots, sidewalks, etc. There have also been ideas around expanding pedestrian-friendly open spaces, which could include public streets.
The City of Richmond is working with Richmond City Council to engage neighborhood associations and merchant associations to get their input on this short-term initiative. Councilwoman Kristen Larson reached out to me on behalf of WHNA to share our feedback. I, personally, like this idea as a way to support our local businesses and keep our community safely connected, but strongly welcome your thoughts as I share a representative voice of our neighborhood.
Please email your input and feedback to me at email@example.com by Thursday May 28.
