I was sworn in as Councilwoman for the 2nd District earlier this month. Much is happening with City government, so I wanted to provide you with a brief update.
I have been appointed to the following City Council Committees: Finance and Economic Development; Land Use, Housing and Transportation; Education and Human Services; and Governmental Operations. I was appointed as an alternate to the Public Safety Committee. Additionally, I have been appointed as a Council representative to the regional Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Richmond Regional Planning District Commission.
On Wednesday, January 25 at 5:30 p.m., I will be hosting a public meeting to discuss the draft Pulse Corridor Plan developed by the City’s Department of Planning and Development Review. The meeting well be held at Fox Elementary School, 2300 Hanover Avenue. The City’s Bus Rapid Transit system, or “Pulse,” will bring significant changes to neighborhoods along Broad Street and the entire 2nd District; please attend this important meeting to find out more about the proposed plan and ask questions of Planning Department staff.
Finally on Thursday, March 2 at 5:30 p.m., please mark your calendar to attend my first District Citizens’ meeting. It will be held at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center located at 2400 W. Leigh Street. An agenda for that meeting will be announced soon.
It is an honor and privilege to serve as your City Council representative. Please contact me at any time to share your thoughts and concerns.
Kim Gray, Councilwoman
Richmond North Central 2nd Voter District
