Mayor Levar Stoney’s FY 2019 – 2023 Capital Improvement Plan supports the Richmond Riverfront Plan and includes two important appropriations.

  • $484,000 for Intermediate Terminal and Riverfront Public Access: This appropriation supports the creation of new public spaces along the riverfront near the future East Riverfront GRTC Pulse station.
  • $200,000 for Riverfront Plan Implementation: This appropriation supports the creation of a new walking and biking trail known as the “Missing Link” which would connect the T. Tyler Potterfield Memorial Bridge, Belle Isle, Forest Hill Park, and other Southside neighborhoods. In May of 2017 Mayor Stoney committed to completing the “Missing Link” trail by the end of his first term.
