RICHMOND, Va. — More than 1,000 residents in low-income neighborhoods could be without a home as the Richmond Re-Development Housing Authorities (RRHA) plan to demolish and rebuild neighborhoods like Gilpin Court.
“This is an issue that`s been on again and off again for a long time in the city,” said Richmond resident, Phil Wilayto.
More than 100 residents faced the RRHA Wednesday afternoon in response to a plan that could kick thousands out of their home.
“You tear down that housing, where are the people supposed to go? Well RRHA isn’t considering that,” Wilayto said. The RRHA have developed a five-year plan that would ultimately tear down public housing and rebuild new ones in their place.
This is a multi year project that starts with Gilpin Court.
