In November 2014, Governor Terry McAuliffe announced Amtrak service would be coming to the Roanoke in 2017. This service will be an extension of the current Amtrak service provided for the City of Lynchburg. The City of Roanoke has hired a consultant to help determine the feasibility of locating a terminal station in the downtown area of the city. Preliminary work began on the study last November. This public meeting will be the first opportunity to hear from residents and interested citizens regarding ideas for the station location, design, and other elements.
The meeting will be a “drop in” format, with representatives from both the consultant and city on-hand to answer questions and receive comments. It is not necessary to attend the entire session and no formal presentation will be made.
For more information, contact Chris Chittum, Roanoke’s director of Planning, Building, and Development, at (540) 853-2356.

About a year ago a small group convened to investigate the possibility of revitalizing the issue of redistricting. They believe that the in-state legislative districts belong to the citizens of the Commonwealth; not to any legislator, political party, or special interest. They are fighting for an independent commission on redistricting.
The first Sixth Congressional District Awards Dinner will be held January 22, 2015 at Beth El in Harrisonburg. DPVA Executive Director Robert Dempsey will be the featured speaker. This is the first of two annual events in the district beginning in the coming year. The next is planned for the southern end of the district in the area of Lexington later in the spring to accommodate attendees at both ends of the 180 mile long region.
Neither the official name of the dinner nor that of the Award(s) have been chosen, so local committees are invited to submit suggestions.
Sixth Congressional District Democratic Chairs for each locality will submit nominations for their top Democrats. The Chairs and their committees choose the selection method and one of the nominees will be chosen as the submission for this year’s DPVA Grassroots Award. So, save the date(s) and plan to attend one or both dinners
Tickets for the January event will be $20. The process for ticket purchase will be announced soon.
