Community dialogue on changes in Church Hill next Tuesday

September 17, 2014 9:15 am by

Addressing the Changes in Church Hill – A Community Dialogue Facilitated by Hope in the Cities will be held Tuesday, September 23, from 5-7:30 PM at the East District Center (701 North 25th Street).

Church Hill is the oldest neighborhood in Richmond and it is undergoing a dramatic transformation.  While large areas of the neighborhood remain mired in poverty, other parts of the neighborhood are the homes of upscale restaurants and hipster businesses. 

In this discussion, we want to invite people with deep knowledge of Church Hill, but who come from a variety of perspectives—political representatives and community organizers, residents whose lives are being impacted by the changes, and business owners both old and new, past and present.

Among the panelists will be Evrim Dogu, owner of Sub Rosa bakery, Sally Schwitters, Executive Director of Tricycle Gardens, and Del. Delores McQuinn, former city councilwoman for Church Hill, as well as longtime Church Hill-based attorney John L. Taylor III.

Sponsored by the University of Richmond. If you have any questions, contact Laura Browder at 289-8312 or lbrowde2@richmond.edu and Patricia Herrera at 287-6352 pherrera@richmond.edu.
