At Monday’s marathon City Council meeting, City Council voted down the amendment that would have removed funding for the traffic calming project for Manchester (and all other sections of the City). They did not however, appropriate any funding for the Hull Street Revitalization project.
This is two years in a row that the Hull Street Revitalization project has been listed on the Capital Improvement Program (CIP), but received no funding. This means the earliest this project can be evaluated again is next May of 2017. Practically speaking this means that the Hull Street Revitalization project likely won’t be started until 2018 if it is funded in next year’s budget.
We are encouraging folks to let Ellen Robertson know if you are satisfied or dissatisfied with this result. She can be reached at: Ellen.Robertson@Richmondgov.com.
