Planning Commission approves Cannon Creek Greenway

If you are following the progress of Mayor Dwight Jones’ Pedestrian, Bicycling and Trails Planning Commission — promising to implement a “Complete Streets” policy and making room for cars, buses, bikes and pedestrians on city roadways — today was a big step in the name of progress. See this report from NBC12’s Rachel DePompa:

Plans for a bike and pedestrian trail in north Richmond cleared a major hurdle today. The Richmond Planning Commission green lighted the creation of a new greenway along the Richmond-Henrico Turnpike. 

As of now this area of north Richmond is a virtual dumping ground. The residents here want to see this place turned into a scenic greenway.
