Power out on part of 400 block Laurel.

Before it was the name of the still-morphing local avant-garde jazz/rock band, it was the nickname of this Oregon Hill house on Idlewood that used to often offer lodging for touring musicians.

This concert in honor of Mali’s National Independence Day will benefit the Segou-Richmond House. Kokanko’s fantastic trio is lending their gifts to help VFOM raise funds for this joint project between our two sister cities: The Segou-Richmond House will be a community center to support removing barriers to girls education and social empowerment through sports, the arts and IT. On 6 acres of land near the Niger River, donated by local Cheick Mansour Haidara Foundation, the Virginia Friend of Mali and Segou’s Sister City Committee has begun construction of the site’s water source – a 10 meter deep well – that will facilitate the making of bricks, the playing fields and next phases of building.

The Yield sign near Grayland/Idlewood is missing. This is an extremely dangerous intersection even with the yield sign there. This is just east of Harrison Street next to the off ramp for the 195 expressway. There have already been calls to the City and Police about this and it should be fixed soon if not already.
A severe thunderstorm last night brought down some tree branches and many area residents lost power, but with a tornado warning and VCU sirens blaring, neighbors know it could have been much worse.
Photos this morning of traffic on Idlewood, mainly from the Monument 10K race. You can see where it’s backing up 195 Belvidere exit.
Speaking of Idlewood, Mayoral candidate/citizen activist Rick Tatnall recently inquired with Councilperson Parker Agelasto about the upcoming Idlewood roundabout project. Agelasto says that the project has been hung up by the Richmond Metropolitan Transportation Authority and legal paperwork for a small easement on RMTA property. There should be a resolution soon on this. It will then go out for bids and construction with the hopes of being completed this year.
