The Agenda: Local government briefs for 6.10.19

Goochland’s new brown-background private street signs start going up this month. (Jonathan Spiers)

This month marks the start of an 18- to 24-month process to replace all 789 of the county’s private street signs. The signs will be a change from the standardized green sign with white lettering, using a brown background instead due to cost considerations. The effort to mark private roads with new signs is intended to narrow down addresses and reduce emergency response times.

Supervisors meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Public hearing items include a request from Jonathan Bremer to permit the continued operation of an existing farmers’ market with expanded vendor operations beside the Gayton Road and Ridgefield Parkway intersection. Full agenda here.

City Council meets at 6 p.m. Monday. Business on the consent agenda includes an amendment to the ordinance that created the Navy Hill Development Advisory Commission so that the commission would provide a final report on the proposed redevelopment of the area around the Coliseum within 90 days of the introduction of ordinances instead of 90 days after commission members were appointed.

Other requests include a 10-unit multifamily building at 3115 Jefferson Davis Highway and a day nursery for up to 130 children in the 2400 block of Royall and Webber avenues. Full agenda available here.
