The City of Richmond has added over 30,000 people since 2000 and is on track to continue to grow in population. How do we want to design our city to accommodate growth and maintain a high quality of life? Attendees at the July TEDxRVASalon watched a few talks about urban planning and discussed this question, addressing various ways to make Richmond even better than it is today.
TEDxRVA gathered community members at Clopton Siteworks on July 18, 2017 to talk about how Richmond is already changing. Formerly the Philip Morris Tobacco Storage Complex, this 25-acre site of historic timber-frame warehouses is now being transformed through adaptive re-use into a creative community for small businesses. Their goal is to bring 500 jobs to the Jeff Davis Corridor. It was a fitting site for us to come together as a community and explore how we can and will continue to evolve with intention. Thank you to everyone that attended and shared their ideas. We encourage you to stay engaged with Richmond 300 by clicking here.
