Re: “New Richmond City Council Opens with Friendly Vibes

R Moffett, the duties you describe are more the mayor's responsibility. City Council legislates and budgets, but the mayor must execute the laws and ensure that core services are carried out. Let's hope this council and this mayor work together better than the last council and mayor.

Re: “Plan Emerges for a Residential Tower on Grace Street

The extra parking is needed not so much for commuters as it is for the many residents in downtown. Many of the cool, old business buildings converted into apartments lack sufficient parking of their own. Requiring an extra 600 spaces above and beyond the number required for the building's own residents will allow for residents in neighboring buildings to have a place to park their cars. The combination of a high-rise with a park on top of the parking deck will be more aesthetically pleasing than a pure parking deck would be.

Re: “Jon Baliles Withdraws From Richmond Mayoral Race

Baliles is a good man; Morrissey should follow his example and withdraw.

Re: “Architecture Review: Kanawha Plaza Reopens With a Welcomed Cleaning and Makeover

I think Kanawha Park will re-establish itself as an important place for Richmond's homeless. With Monroe Park closing soon for renovations, Kanawha might be a logical alternative for weekend feeding programs, especially now that there are places for food trucks.

I still wish that there were better shelters of last resort and that the homeless would not sleep in parks in winter time.

Re: “Opinion: Sorry "Pet Parents," But Your Animals Are Not Your Children

I think a better column would have been one telling parents not to treat their children like animals. #priorities

Re: “Joe Morrissey Takes Command

This is how Trump won the Republican nomination: too many ambitious people splitting the mainstream vote, thus allowing a fringe candidate to win with a plurality.

Hopefully some of the candidates with little money or support will do the mature thing and withdraw. If not, we'll be treated to the spectacle of Fightin' Joe chasing interns around City Hall for four years.

Re: “Relocation Explored for Doomed Tree at Maggie Walker Memorial Site

I think we need to consult actual tree movers with the proper equipment. It's simple enough: ask for their opinion on practicality and bids to do the work. If it's practical and affordable (perhaps crowd source fund-able) we can proceed, if not, well cut the tree down if necessary.

People who don't want to get this information before making a decision are just intellectually lazy.
