Richmond, Virginia’s public housing agency holds comment period on plans it already approved, holds hearing to empty room
Richmond, Virginia’s public housing agency is working to demolish public housing while excluding the public from any input in the process.
Ever get the feeling that your local government agency is hoping you just go away?
That certainly seems to be the case with the Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority in Virginia. Over the last six months, prying event basic information about plans to demolish its existing public housing in favor of an entirely voucher-based system has been an exercise in futility. By the time you get the document, you’re too late.
The Virginia-based advocacy group Richmond Transparency and Accountability Project talks to Tom Nash about how they use public records to push for police oversight.
The same day the Richmond Police Department in Virginia faced national scrutiny after an on-camera white officer threatened black middle schoolers that when they turn 18, “you’re mine,” the department announced a collaboration that will allow neighbors to turn the cameras on each other.
