Can anyone define or explain just what a “Conservation Plan” is? I’ve been on the city site and can’t find a definiton and most hits for “conservation plan” are tied to redevelopment. If that’s so, how does redevelopment tie to conservation? For instance, the Redevelopment and Conservation Plan for the Nine Mile Road Corridor is part of this old (2010) but very interesting Comprehensive Economic Developed Strategy prepared for the city: http://www.richmondgov.com/economiccommunitydevelopment/documents/2010ComprehensiveEcomonicDevelopmentStrategy.pdf

I just wish they were talking about the real Woodville…because another house was torn down the other week… the city doesn’t care about one of its first black suburbs. This is why it is important that the city use its real subdivision names instead of made up neighborhood names. I can’t believe they told me it would contribute to gang activity.They do not care.

Thanks John. Oddly enough when I hit the city site for “Conservation Plan Church Hill Central” it gave me nothing…just didn’t get the words in order.
