Martinsville, VA Community Development wants to thank Renaissance Planning - Caroline Dwyer and Mia Candy - for a great Community Meeting at Grace Presbyterian Church last night! Around 25 people came out to share their input regarding making the Fayette Street Corridor a safer, more accessible and walkable/bikable street. We were glad that VDOT representatives were present as well!
