Scott, I don’t wish to vilify Breast Cancer Awareness walkers, but their driving long distances and parking in front of garage doors and fire hydrants in order to walk is in bad form. This event, and the many others, such as the Folk Festival make living here in Oregon Hill more difficult than need be. The Carillon neighborhood uses coded barricades during events. I really hope there is plentiful photo/video evidence of visiting people and cars impacting our lives, in no positive way. The amphitheater will mean Oregon Hill will become a de facto parking lot for its frequent events. I know mz customers impact parking, and I encourage them to use the two parking lots we provide, but thousands of people are not coming to mz at once. Must. Take. Photos. Thank you, Ed Vasaio
[…] hope folks had a chance to see Ed’s recent feedback in regard to how events can have a negative effect on his restaurant, Mam…. As I told Ed, I did take pictures of problems during the Folk Festival and shared them with […]
I am a parent in the Open High PTSA. We wanted to let you know that we are having an Open High PTSA fundraiser at Chipotle in Carytown on Tuesday, January 27 between 4-8pm. Anyone that wants to come and support the school will need to tell the Chipotle cashier at the time of purchase that they are there for the fundraiser. If you feel it’s appropriate, will you pass this along to your neighborhood?
I am a new property owner in Oregon Hill and want to talk with someone in the neighborhood association.
I am very upset that our new recycling bins have been removed. They allowed for us to recycle more and were very convenient. So what if they are a little bit “too big”…can we please get them back? Ugly big bins, as the association calls them, shouldn’t stop us from saving the planet and recycling more efficiently and conveniently. Come on people…
Can someone tell me why a neighborhood association would remove recycling bins for “looks”….the neighborhood won’t be there in the future if we don’t recycle. Can we please have “ugly, large” recycling bins to create a more beautiful world? Oregon Hill @

CultureWorks Hosts CREATE THE VOTE:
A Mayoral Forum on Tapping RVA’s Creative Culture
Richmond, Virginia, July 6, 2016
CultureWorks, the non-profit organization committed to driving a vibrant community in the Richmond and Tri-Cities region through arts and culture, will host a mayoral forum this October about the influence of arts and culture in the City of Richmond, entitled CREATE THE VOTE: A Mayoral Forum on Tapping RVA’s Creative Culture. Michael Paul Williams, metro columnist for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, will moderate the event at Virginia Repertory Theatre’s Sarah Belle and Neil November Theatre.
In CREATE THE VOTE, Mr. Williams will lead Richmond’s 2016 mayoral candidates in a discussion about arts and culture as a driving economic force in the City of Richmond, as well as how the candidates believe the city can best nurture and support artists and cultural organizations throughout the region. This is an open forum, free to the public; and those attending are encouraged to bring topical questions for the candidates, in addition to Mr. Williams’ questions.
Scott Garka, president of CultureWorks, is delighted that CultureWorks can play a role in driving this important discussion among the mayoral candidates. ”Arts and culture are critical to our future, for Richmond and for the region as a whole. So the voters need to hear the candidates’ vision for the City’s future, and how arts and culture are a part of it.”
The Historic November Theatre, seating six hundred, offers an appropriate backdrop to a conversation about arts and culture in the city. Managing Director, Phil Whiteway, commented on hosting the event. “Virginia Rep is proud of our role in the revitalization of the Arts District, and we are delighted to host this important conversation about the future of arts in Richmond.”
CREATE THE VOTE: A Mayoral Forum on Tapping RVA’s Creative Culture will be held at 6:00 pm on October 18, 2016 at the November Theatre, 114 West Broad Street, in Richmond.

Does anyone know the status of the sidewalk repair on Laurel Street? It seems like the city stopped right before the worst section!
