  Mayor's State of the City
February 28, 2018

Last night, I made my fourth State of the City presentation since I took office as mayor of Richmond.

If you haven’t yet seen it, here are the links and our webpage for the presentation:

It was by far the most positive and optimistic report yet. Some highlights include:

  • City finances in best shape in decades
  • Record low unemployment
  • Rents stable; home values up
  • Ferry service starting this fall
  • Hilltop Mall being renovated
  • Branding and marketing study completed
  • Second lowest homicide rate ever; zero homicides in 2018
  • Richmond Promise awarded 361 scholarship worth $2.2 million
  • More money for street maintenance
  • Solar1 completed and on line

I am always interested to hear how things are going in your neighborhood, what the issues are and how the Mayor’s Office can help you.
