Monroe Park renovation meeting bares differing views

The RTD has a piece on Charles Samuels’ Monroe Park meeting from last night:

With advocates for the homeless holding paper-bag signs such as “Parks are for People,” more than 100 Richmond-area residents met last night at the Carillon to discuss what will happen to feeding programs and other services if Monroe Park closes for renovations. [...]

In brief reports, representatives of the groups also suggested moving homeless services to the Virginia War Memorial; scaling back the park improvements; establishing a day-support center for the homeless; and improving transportation between Monroe Park and the Conrad Center, a feeding center east of downtown.
