The City of Richmond hosted a booth at the Juneteenth festival on Saturday, June 16, 2018. The intent was to introduce the launch of the Point Molate Community Visioning process and inform the broader community about the upcoming first of three Community Workshop and a site tour that will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2018. More than 75 people visited the booth and 36 people signed up to join the project mailing list.
The booth included a series of boards in English and Spanish with information about the site’s history, aerial maps and images of the site, and information on the Community Visioning process. In addition to the boards, the booth had a sign-up sheet to gather contact information for receiving updates about upcoming events, a coloring area for kids, and lemonade!
Members of the consultant team from WRT, CivicMakers and Groundwork, along with city staff and a Spanish translator were at the booth, actively engaging with visitors at the booth and providing information about the project, process, the site, as well as the upcoming community workshop.
Visitors to to the booth ranged from those who had never heard of Point Molate, those who knew the history related to the winery and the Navy uses, and those who had already RSVPed for the first Community Workshop and were eager to hear more about the next steps.
We look forward to seeing more of you this Saturday, June 23rd at the Community Workshop and Site Tour. Please RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/point-molate-community-visioning-workshop-1-site-tour-tickets-47045924627
