The Redevelopment Commission will be meeting this week to vote on Building a PUBLIC PARKING LOT and bringing the MODEL T MUSEUM to the Historic Richmond Depot District. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

This Thursday, September 15th
12pm (Noon)
2nd floor of the City Building , In the Community Room

The Depot District has been growing with new businesses and business expansions. A new restaurant (Firehouse BBQ and Blues Club) and a new Coffee Shop (Roscoe’s) will be opening soon. Plus, we are bringing new business to Richmond with the I-70 Billboard Campaign and Attraction Maps. We have all been working together to bring new jobs to Richmond . A few years ago the streets were bare, but now the District needs more parking. This is a wonderful problem to have, and now we can help bring more people into the Historic Downtown Depot District with the addition of a Public Parking lot at the S.E. corner of N. 8th and N.”D” St.

We can also bring the Model T Museum to Richmond! The current Model T Museum is being torn down to make room for an expansion at Warm Glow Candle Outlet and they want their new home to be in the Depot District. The Model T Association is a not-for-profit organization. They hosted the largest event ever held in Wayne County: The Model T Party and Parade. Jay and Barb Klehfoth showed us what can be done when a community works together. We can really make things happen. It is our turn to help them. Other communities want the museum to move to their state. We have an opportunity to bring a NATIONAL ATTRACTION to Richmond that will bring in more tourists, more business and create more jobs for our community. And just think of the charm of Model T’s driving daily on our streets!

Please be at the meeting to show your support

We need the Parking lot to make the District grow. We need the Model T Museum to help us grow faster.

Please FORWARD this e-mail to anyone you know who wants to see this Community Grow and Prosper.

Thank you!
