In Jackson Ward, questions remain about the fate of a towering Southern live oak, and whether it will be part of the Maggie Walker memorial.

From the public art commission:

Location change for Jan. 12 meeting on Plaza design for Maggie L. Walker public art! ... Due to the great amount of interest in this project we have moved the location to the Richmond Public Library Main Branch auditorium in order to accommodate a larger group.

Join the City of Richmond, Public Art Commission and artist Toby Mendez along with the design team to explore ideas for the urban plaza at Adams and Broad. This will be an excellent opportunity to have community members to give input for their vision of the plaza that will be the home of public art to honor Maggie L. Walker.

So in summary that's the Community Meeting on Urban Plaza and Public Art honoring Maggie L. Walker which will now be held on Tuesday Jan. 12 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Richmond Public Library Main Branch Auditorium, 101 E Franklin Street.

Organizers ask that you please RSVP here so they have enough materials on hand. For more information, go here.
