Community Engagement Reports

Highland Park Spring Break 2017

On Saturday April 29th, Highland Park residents joined us for the Highland Park Spring Break Event. The event featured 8 different non-profit organizations working within the community. The goal was to engage with community members about how they might envision the growth of their neighborhood, to describe the resources these organizations offered, and most importantly to eat, dance, and perform in the talent show. 

At least 100 people showed up to dance, hear about the Storefront for Community Design, Groundwork RVA, Saving Our Youth, the CPDC, LISC, and Tricycle Gardens. On display in the 6PIC space were plans for architectural plans for local business improvements that community members voted on. The day was unusually hot but that didn't stop the talent show from continuing!

The redevelopment of the City Stadium Site is of importance to the entire greater Richmond region, but this engagement process focused on the input and perspectives of those neighbors in closest proximity to the site—the people who interact with the site on a daily basis.

Storefront responded to a request from the newly formed Robinson Street Association to assist in a prioritization process by, first, organizing an urban design walk down the corridor with members of the City of Richmond’s Department of Planning and Development Review (PDR) in February of 2013.
