A new civic association is being created through the merger of the Church Hill Central and the Oakwood/Chimborazo associations.

The next meeting is scheduled for June 4th at 7pm in one of the meeting rooms at the EDI building (corner of 25th and M Streets), with plans to meet at the Robinson Theater after that.

A message sent out by Justin Shelton after their initial meeting last week:

First off, I’d like to thank those folks that came out to the meeting last night. We’re definitely making progress.

For those of you that weren’t there, we had a public safety update from the Richmond Police Department, followed by a brief presentation by the Better Housing Coalition on their work at the Beckstoffer’s Mill development. We will be issuing a letter of support to help them in their appearance before the Board of Zoning Appeals early next month. We then started a discussion on what we wanted this group to start working on in our neighborhood. From this conversation, we formed five categories – Education, Public Safety, Communication/Outreach/Social, Beautification, Economic Development/Zoning.

Our next meeting will be held on June 4th at 7pm in one of the meeting rooms at the EDI building at the corner of 25th and M Streets. We will receive a public safety update from the good folks of the RPD, then break into groups to start forming plans on tackling some neighborhood issues. Please join us.
