On April 15, the first public meeting of the Shockoe Alliance was held at Main Street Station. The essential point of the evening, aside from bringing together most of the people who'd attended the Rose Center gathering in February of 2018, was to present the mission and vision of the Shockoe Alliance and it's core purpose for being: creation of a Shared Vision that results in a Shockoe Bottom Master Plan. The Sacred Ground Project is participating to ensure that a Shockoe Bottom Memorial Park is factored into that master plan.
We also invite you to include equitable economic development in your responses. And it isn't limited to saying "a percentage of housing units must be affordable." Equitable development must benefit those who need it most and sustain everyone.
All of the information that was presented on April 15, at the Shockoe Alliance first community meeting, is on-line here for your review and three surveys for you to complete. Please do so by May 6.
Please complete these surveys by May 6.
