The Community Assisted Public Safety (CAPS) meeting is tomorrow.
Date: Wednesday, January 13, 2010
Time: 6:15 p.m.
Place: Round House at Byrd Park (600 Swan Lake Dr.)
What is CAPS?
Community Assisted Public Safety (CAPS) is a systemic change in the way the residents and city administration think about and approach overall neighborhood health in the City of Richmond. CAPS seeks to eliminate blight and restore luster to our neighborhoods by partnering with citizens to identify and eliminate the problems associated with the most troublesome properties in our City. CAPS provides a vehicle for us to work together to ensure that each of Richmond’s neighborhoods is clean, safe, and healthy.
The CAPS philosophy recognizes that code enforcement alone cannot deal with blighted and other problem properties in the City. Nor can the Police alone always solve crime-plagued properties. A key feature of CAPS is that numerous city departments work together as a team with citizens to ensure that a problem property will stay a priority until a satisfactory resolution is reached. The CAPS process has achieved outstanding results in all parts of the City.

If you’ve been to Byrd Park lately you’ve noticed that the boats are gone and there is construction in progress. By July 4, the boats will be back and a new building will be in place to serve up refreshments. Find out more at Richmond Magazine.
