    Richmond VA blacks were left out of new city plan process

    A fellow community and urban planning blogger (Urban Richmond), picked up on this story, On Racism & the Charrette. Accusations of racial exclusion in city planning charrette. This is a topic that is of great interest and importance to me, personally. I plan to follow this and hope to do some future articles on the issue of minorities not being proportionately represented in their community's planning process. Also See: Master Plan Sessions Confront Race, Push Details from Richmond's Style Weekly.

    As someone who was involved in the Richmond VA charrette, I highly recommend reading the blog Buttermilk and Molasses, at floricane.com. John has a whole section devoted to the master plan and that particular charrette process.
