Cancellation of Public Safety Forum planned for Wed evening, June 5, 2024

By | June 3, 2024

A reminder to Richmond Racial Equity members, supporters, and interested folks:

We canceled the community Public Safety Forum planned for this Wednesday evening, June 5, due to a long term illness of one of our guests. We plan to continue the forum in the fall, possibly September.

Meantime, please consider attending the Planning Commission meeting that same night at 7a, for a discussion about Jolina Court developer’s request for changes in zoning. This is an important meeting for educating ourselves about town policy which affects access to housing, and for advocating for access to affordable housing. Please come if you can:
