RICHMOND – State law may trump local ordinances, but that does not mean Richmond City Council is going to lie down when Virginia legislators try to unilaterally impose policies on the city.
Richmond City Council unanimously adopted a resolution Monday night to request that the mayor “seek regional participation” in the development of a new baseball stadium in Richmond.
Monday’s City Council meeting was seemingly the most divided Richmond’s been since 1865.
Rand Burgess, owner of The Camel, has filed a petition to Richmond City Council President Charles Samuels seeking to extend the building’s noise curfew to 2AM nightly. Currently, live music at The Camel must end earlier than other music venues in the city.
There’s been a buzz around town saying Richmond may build a new baseball stadium in Shockoe Bottom for a while now. It began as the brainchild of Mayor Dwight Jones, and the Richmond City Council has shown flashes of support of the idea, but there’s still a ways to go before anything becomes concrete.
