New Construction on Catherine Street

The Mews

I've walked passed this attractive doorway perhaps thousands of times.  I always imagined that just behind this door was a peaceful little get away, a secret garden kind of place.  Maybe that's why I've never bothered to get past the front door.  I sort of like preserving it the way I see it in my minds eye.  In case you are wondering where this is you'll find the answer after the jump.

Gilpin Court Should Be the Next (to go)

In a wide ranging editorial in the Times Dispatch, former Community Development Director Rachel Flynn bids farewell to Richmond. Most specific to Greater Jackson Ward are her recommendations for Gilpin Court.

In my view, Gilpin Court should be the next public housing project to be transformed with HUD funds – and it should (1) be completed in a timely manner, (2) aim for one-to-one unit replacement (3) ensure strong community engagement and (4) include community services such as day care, elder care, after-school services, etc

Affordable Housing Rally on Monday
