The agenda for the Monday, May 12 meeting of City Council (PDF) contains 1 item of specifically local interest:
Ord. No. 2014-100 (Patron: Mayor Jones) – To accept a deed from the School Board conveying 1611 North 31st Street to the City and to authorize the Chief Administrative Officer to act on behalf of the City in executing such deed.
As part of the City’s East End Transformation to improve the quality of life for local residents, deconcentrate poverty and stimulate private investment in the East End of Richmond, the City and RRHA intend to partner with a master developer to redevelop the severely distressed Creighton Court public housing complex. This multi-year, multi-phase project will focus on the construction of new residences in a mixed-use, mixed-income community with retail, commercial, educational and recreational amenities. The property located at 1611 N. 31st Street is critical in providing an opportunity to phase the redevelopment of the Creighton Court site and will accommodate a portion of the HUD mandated one to one replacement of public housing.
