Special Session of City Council Recap - 3/2/2015
In this special session, Richmond City Council voted to approve the transfer of city-owned land to the Economic Development Authority so it can start constructing the Stone Brewery building.
Unlike in past meetings, this was a unanimous vote that reflected either growing support or resignation from those on City Council who have opposed the deal in the past. Ord. No. 2014-254-2015-46 - Stone Brewery amendments
This amendment to the Stone Brewery building agreement allows the Economic Development Authority to start receiving money from City Council sooner by loosening the process for appropriations.
Ord. No. 2015-34-47 - Transfer land at 3101 Wharf Street to EDA
This ordinance simply gives land that the City owns to the EDA so it can start building the brewery on it.
Ord. No. 2015-46-48 - Transferring land to Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority
This ordinance transfers city-owned land to the RRHA so it can begin constructing housing for low-income Richmonders on it.
