The Dept. of Planning and Development Review is developing a new city-wide Master Plan, which is called Richmond 300: A Guide for Growth.  This survey is for you to provide your ideas on the VUU/Chamberlayne Activity Center. For more information about Richmond 300 and to review and comment on the additional Activity Centers and draft maps and draft strategies, please visit richmond300.com/share.  Please encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to fill out the survey too. The surveys will close on November 3, 2019 at 11:59 P.M.

Activity Centers: A lot of the city won’t change at all in the next 20 years, but the Activity Centers are places where things could change - what do we want these areas to look like? What is the essential character of these areas going to be like?

2. Vision for the "Neighborhood Center" at Lombardy and Overbook in the VUU/Chamberlayne Plan:
Lombardy between Brook and Chamberlayne is an ideal location for a pedestrian-friendly retail and shopping district. Today, an overabundance of automobile- oriented uses, parking lots, and vacant buildings discourage the development of a strong connection between the surrounding neighborhoods and the commercial area.
Lombardy and adjacent streets should be changed to allow on-street parking, streetscaping, pedestrian lighting and signage. Curb cuts should be reduced to better control vehicular movement, and parking areas should be created behind buildings and in public lots. New commercial buildings with storefronts can be located along Lombardy, and selected historic buildings can be reused for shops and restaurants. The focus of the district will be a new public square at the intersection of Lombardy and Overbrook that will feature attractive landscaping and public art.
