We’ve got money!
How should Richmond spend $17.5 million it has received under the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Here are a few examples: pedestrian safety improvements at Key and Barrett….pedestrian and transit improvements for the San Pablo Avenue corridor…pedestrian safety improvements at Barrett and San Pablo, McBryde and San Pablo…connecting an antenna at City Hall so neighborhoods can radio City Emergency Services in a disaster. You may have your own suggestions.
