Planning to consider new house on 26th, bike rental stand on Capital Trail

The agenda for the 4/16/2016 meeting of the Planning Commission includes a few items of specially local interest:

  • ORD. 2016-103 To authorize the special use of the property known as 1326 North 26th Street for the purpose of permitting a single family detached dwelling, upon certain terms and conditions.
  • UDC No. 2016-11 Final Location, Character and Extent review of rental outpost for the Richmond Cycling Corps’ Kickstand at 3011 Water St; UDC No. 2016-11

This Richmond Cycling Corps’ Kickstand will be a seasonal bicycle rental and service station along the Virginia Capital Trail on the city-owned parcel at the former cement towers that were demolished last year. The facility will be a freight shipping container retrofitted for this purpose, facing the Capital Trail.

In addition to the Kickstand rental services, Richmond Cycling Corps is proposing to form a cadre of trained, paid “ski patrol” style safety officers on the trail that will use the Kickstand structure as a home base.

Richmond Cycling Corps is an outreach program which uses cycling to connect with youth in public housing, responsible for the Armstrong Cycling Team, MLK Cycling Team, and the Armstrong Bike Park.
