The next step toward development of a Small Area Plan and implementation strategy for Shockoe will take the form of a community workshop in July. The Shockoe Alliance will hold its next community meeting from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on July 17, 2019 at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, 1000 Mosby Street.
This meeting will include a brief presentation of public input received from approximately 200 people who participated in the first meeting in April at Main Street Station, as well as continued on-line input and survey responses. The focus of the meeting will be a workshop-style discussion around the major themes identified at the April meeting, updates on key projects in Shockoe, and development of key program elements for use in developing plan concepts. The discussion will be facilitated by community leaders, City staff, and members of the Shockoe Alliance.
The Shockoe Alliance is charged with guiding the design and implementation of concepts and recommendations for the future of Shockoe with the goal of creating an innovative space of memorialization, learning and transformation – all while protecting the area’s cultural and historic heritage.
