On September 13th, Richmond Mayor Lavar Stoney presented his plan for allocating $155 million in American Rescue Plan funds. The plan directs $78 million towards parks and community centers. Please do your part to support the James River Park.
There’s a quote out there about the power of a group. It alludes to the fact that one person doing something small may not make a difference, but a lot of people, each doing that small thing, can exact a colossal change.
Improving access to the James River within the James River Park System is a priority of the James River Outdoor Coalition (JROC). The James River Park System’s Huguenot Flatwater area is now one step closer to having a universally accessible access ramp!

She’s in charge of the Habitat Restoration Project there.
