Richmond City Council meets Monday in informal session at 4 p.m. and regular session at 6 p.m. The agenda for the 4 p.m. meeting includes a staff presentation on small area development plans for the Coliseum-anchored city-owned land once eyed for the Navy Hill project, and the site of the Pamunkey Indian Tribe’s proposed casino on the outskirts of Manchester.

The agenda for the 6 p.m. meeting includes a vote on proposed rules for short-term residential rentals in the city. The vote was deferred from council’s Feb. 10 meeting. The policy would require anyone looking to rent out a property for less than 30 days at a time to obtain a biennial permit, at a cost of $300, among other requirements.

The full agendas for both meetings can be found here.

Mayor’s budget proposal emphasizes roads funding

Mayor Levar Stoney presented his budget proposal for fiscal year 2021 to City Council on Friday. The proposal includes a $782 million operating budget and $85 million capital improvement plan, with increased funding for schools, housing and other city services.

Among those, the proposal includes $32 million for road paving, and maintenance and sidewalk placements. The amount doubles the roads funding in the current budget, which includes $15 million for paving and $1.2 million in sidewalk maintenance and placement.

Half of the funding would come from the city, and the rest from state revenue generated and reinvested in the region by the creation of the Central Virginia Transportation Authority through the passage of House Bill 1541.

A public hearing on the budget is scheduled for council’s May 11 regular meeting.

Budget proposal, GRTC service on Chesterfield agenda

Chesterfield supervisors meet Wednesday at 6 p.m. Full agenda here. Business includes County Administrator Joe Casey’s presentation of the proposed budget for next fiscal year.

Also on the agenda is an agreement with GRTC to extend transit service along Route 1 in the county. Route 111 would begin service March 16, with 24 bus stops from the Food Lion north of Chippenham Parkway to John Tyler Community College south of Route 10. Buses will run 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with stops about every 30 minutes. The service is estimated to cost $1.16 million annually.

The first two years of service, along with marketing and infrastructure costs, are being paid for with demonstration grant funds obtained from the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation. The county is applying for additional state funds to offset the local cost of service for five years after the demonstration period ends.
