Re: “A La Carte

Beware of the the evil meal tax citizens of Henrico and Chesterfield. Same lines used by the City of Richmond to keep it, that it will go to the schools and is only really meant for out of town tourists to pay. The burden is on YOU and your local businesses NOT on these mystery out of county and city guests. Remember the general fund can be used for anything the board wants to use it for, hence the word "general" fund. Repeal The Meal Tax in Richmond, Stop Henrico and Chesterfield Meal Taxes!

Re: “Is Boulevard the Next Short Pump?

Interesting. Would definitely be an ideal use, hopefully it will be mixed use development more appropriate for an urban setting rather that acres of asphalt and big boxes like in the 'burbs.

Re: “Shockoe Hotels Break Ground

Well it's a practical use of the lot and glad to see this project moving. The last rendering I saw had a monument build into the corner of the building (is there a final rendering anywhere?) and with it including a conference center and hotel it's both a historical and functional part of Shockoe Slip. These are practical times so I applaud the practicality of this project even though a $19 million, 300 foot island pyramid shooting colored light into the sky would have won on WOW factor points, but would have chewed up tax dollars to maintain rather than actually produced tax dollars for the city like a 210 room hotel does.

Re: “Bow Tie Cinemas to Add Art Films, New Theater

Winner! Perfect use for this building and great for Richmond's rapidly growing indy film makers who will finally have real local screening rooms rather than youtube, a lap top and a living room. Also glad to see the "restaurant space available" sign finally gone after 4 years.

Re: “Mayor of Short Pump Moves to Fan

We need to change your license plates Trevor now that you're officially here and not just visiting every day.
