Remember all those stories we’ve posted about the trolley barn and the proposed Glenwood Apartments project? There has been a LOT of public discussion about this project. Many people against and for.
Two big procedural requirements to move the project forward have been approved:
1) “The City of Richmond has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required.”
2) “On or about October 19, 2018 the City of Richmond will authorize Glenwood Ridge Apartments, LLC. to submit a request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the release of Project Based Voucher funds under Section 8(o) of the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, as amended, to undertake a project known as Glenwood Ridge Apartments for the purpose of the construction of 82 units at 3801 and 3805 Glenwood Avenue, Richmond, VA 23223, a project with a total estimated cost of approximately $19.1 million located at 3801 and 3805 Glenwood Avenue, Richmond, VA 23223.”
