Rick Young, President of the Jefferson Davis Association (JDA) announced today that funding had been secured from the Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce and Dupont to conduct a revitalization study for an area of the community located at the Route1/Chippenham Parkway interchange. The JDA has been working with the Chesterfield Planning Department and Virginia Commonwealth University's Department of Planning and Urban Studies in this cooperative effort.
A graduate student intern has drafted a preliminary report working with the county planning department. In phase II, the information and findings will be further examined in a VCU site planning class being taught by local designer Ralph Higgins this summer. Students will develop specific recommendations for the study area and report back to the JDA and the Chesterfield County Planning Department.
Mr. Young indicated that he was extremely pleased with the novel cooperative working relationship between the JDA, VCU, Chesterfield County and the private sector all focusing efforts on improving the area and enhancing redevelopment opportunities for the community.
