Navy Hill Community Engagement

This plan was built on community engagement.

Navy Hill is a mixed-use development designed to revitalize an entire neighborhood where one was lost – creating opportunity for the City and all Richmonders with jobs, affordable housing, and new tax revenue.

The plan reflects the input of approximately 3,500 citizens from across every City district who have attended meetings and workshops, participated in surveys and research, and met in person with NH District team members.

These citizens provided input on everything in the plan from affordable housing and job training to minority participation and transit. This plan would not be possible without their input.

We are already focused on workforce development and local employment. We have over 800 signatures from citizens who support the plan and are interested to learn more – especially about jobs.

We have been all across the City – at meetings, at job and reentry fairs, and on foot – and we plan to continue engaging citizens throughout this process. Here are some upcoming events:

  • RVA Safer Streets at Hotchkiss Community Center (November 5)

  • EnRichmond’s Cider Festival (Nov. 10)

  • Manchester First Fridays

  • Bizzarre Bazaar (Nov. 29)
