City Council- 2/27

A lengthy list of continuances awaits us on Monday! The consent agenda is also packed full with a couple of re-zonings, funding for bike projects, and a distillery (?!?) restaurant. Only thing on the regular agenda is accepting money from VDOT to fund the Richmond Transit Network Plan project. Also of note is Reva's proposal to rename City Hall as "L. Douglas Wilder City Hall" is tagged as "waiting withdrawal by patron." Could Reva's mission that started in February 2015 be finally coming to a close? 

As always, we will be live tweeting the council meeting over on twitter.
