Council Approves Monroe Park Renovation Over Public Objections

Last night, Richmond City Council unanimously approved a plan to lease Monroe Park to a non-profit group over objections from members of the public who say the arrangement would displace the homeless who live there now.  The 30-year lease to the Monroe Park Conservancy paves the way for a $6 million renovation to the park scheduled to be completed by next year, financed through public and private funds.
