Re: “Ginter Park Residents Look to City to Stop Westwood Tract

The City of Richmond and the Mayor are wrongfully placing the burden for the resolution of this debacle on neighborhood residents, when City Planning and Development committed a major error that is the cause of this travesty. We will not forget, Mayor Stoney.

Re: “Union Seminary's Proposed Apartment Complex Should Take Notes From Another Richmond School

One of the things that I find very disturbing as a neighbor of the Westwood Tract is the very poor stewardship of the tract by the Seminary. They allowed Maguire House and other structures to fall into disrepair and the property looks generally poorly maintained. Shoukd we expect the same with their redevelopment? I also agree that it is time to return to the drawing board. The current proposed redevelopment is inappropriate in scale, mass, density, construction materials and the architecture and is incompatible for the context of the surrounding historic neighborhood. The cheap in appearance, suburban-style project could be developed in any mediocre suburb in any state. It is not Ginter Park nor Richmond in quality or style. The traffic pattern is poorly planned.

I understand that in these days of dying churches, dwindling church memberships and coffers, that the Presbytary finds it necessary to try to generate income from developing that parcel of land. Housing for a dwindling population of seminary students is not the issue....income and supporting an old model of a seminary and church is the issue. No problem...but do it in a way that does not impact the character and residential property values of this extraordinary neighborhood.
