180RVA organizing for Monday’s City Council meeting

April 23, 2014 7:38 pm by

180RVA is gearing up for Monday’s City Council meeting:

A call to all Richmonders and our neighbors who want to “Save the 180 view”

The threat to the Libby Hill viewshed is now even more real due to the vote by the Planning Commission on April 21st to forward it to City Council for their meeting on April 28th.

Please turn up at City Hall next Monday at 6.00pm to show solid support to stop the approval of the SUP for the 16 story condominium at 2801 E Main St.

We propose in its place a 5 story condominium with the same number of apartments which will complement the historic apartments along Tobacco Row.

Please wear some thing conspicuously red.

More details of this proposed 16 story massive skyscraperper can be found on the attached flyer and at http://180rva.com

Finally but crucially: our on-line petition is at:

Thank you for following our argument – if this view is lost you may wake up and wonder “how could that be allowed, what were we thinking of ” – but by then it will be too late.

There is an alternative – it’s sensible compatible development, which is what we are demanding.
