Randolph Community Group Holiday Party Rescheduled

The RCG Holiday Party is moved to Dec 21 from 6-7:30 p.m. due to the snow.

From Stephanie Rizzi, Randolph Community Group President:

“We hope you are keeping warm in this extremely cold weather.  As you may know, the forecasters are predicting snow for Thursday [Dec 16]  with accumulations from 1 to 3 inches.  Those of you who attended last year will remember that the circumstances were the same then.  It appears that the planning of this event is a pretty accurate predictor of snow.  In spite of this, we have rescheduled the holiday gathering for Tuesday, December 21st from 6-7:30 p.m.  We hope you are able to attend.  Those of you who have generously volunteered to provide food, our hope is that this won’t affect your plans.  Please let me know if you have questions or desire further information.

Have a wonderful remainder of the week, and enjoy the snow!”

CAPS Meeting Tomorrow

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.
