The UCI World Championships bicycle races will be in Richmond from September 19-27, 2015. Building on Rick Tatnall’s idea that “Company is Coming”, I’m offering up My Block both as a way to help get our city looking good before the 400,000 visitors show up, and, longer term, to increase neighborhood ties by strengthening community bonds at the block level and to encourage citizen ownership of their environment.

  • The goal is to get an individual or group to adopt a block, and promise to keep it clean for the next 7 months.
  • This will lead to new interactions between neighbors, and build habits and connections that will last after the bike races have come and gone.
  • We hope to build community capacity and interest for other low-level volunteer projects in the area.
