Are you going? My brother went to JMU's Coaches Caravan for the football program. He told me it was all about helping with NIL and donating money. I wonder if these will be the same. My brother said the only thing they did not do was pass a collection plate. Ha!
Yeah, I am going to go to the 4:00 event in Midlothian. Anyone else?

How is the mall doing?
Terrible. There are some plans, however.
As Mike says they have plans. There is now a fitness center in the front. They are building a new Henrico Arena out back. They plan to do what they are doing with Regency now. Apartments and an "urban" walkable style area. Oh and the area surrounding the mall is busy so once they get the old Va Center Commons re-imagined it will thrive.

I think something similar has been discussed with South Park Mall as well. If it works out I guess it is better than having to demolish the buildings and start over.

Will the new 4K seat Henrico arena have the ability to have the bleachers retracted to allow for multiple courts being used at one time? The news stories I found didn’t really make it clear.

Kinda weird in that many years ago they built malls to service the community. Now they are having to build communities around a mall to service the mall. Urban planning has been turned inside out.

I dunno, market squares/streets have been a thing for a long while. Less so with the advent of malls and sprawl, but maybe they'll make a comeback.
