Maycontact UDC/PC today or tomorrow re Maint Facility

Please Share and send email opposing this

From Flyer:


City of Richmond and Maymont Foundation are the applicants.  Some of the adverse impacts of these maintenance, office, and parking facilities would include:

·        Destroying visitor's first view of Maymont down Hampton Street

Hi All,
I would like to recommend that those opposing the proposed Maymont maintenance facility off Hampton Street write a letter or email to the Urban Design Committee (UDC) and Planning Commission SOON to let them know of your opposition.
Only five letters/emails have been received and posted to the UDC site from: Leah Page, Carol Chaffin, Michael Dodson, Jennifer Owen and me.  Don't you think we should be able to get at least 20 more by the time the Planning Commission meets July 6?  The applicants have proposed to continue the agenda item until September, but let the UDC/PC know NOW that you are against it.  Letters received by Wednesday should be posted by the Monday meeting.  Please feel free to forward this email.
