It's consistent with the "historic" card. Structures that nobody cared about or even noticed suddenly become "historic" when somebody wants to do something innovative on the land. Nothing non-essential can take place if the schools need money...which will be all the time.So, here is a question for you. Why is always either/or regarding the RCPS system when there is talk about building a new arena/baseball stadium? Richmond has not built a new arena/baseball stadium since 1985 when the Diamond was built. The Richmond Coliseum opened in 1971. That's 35 years ago for the Diamond and 49 years ago for the Coliseum. And people want to hide behind a RCPS system that has been broken for at least as long as the Diamond has been opened. The City of Richmond has had multiple opportunities to fix the school system over the years and has failed. Where was the discussion about fixing the school system before the Navy Hill conversation? It wasn't there, but now it's a hot topic? Please!!!!
