Queen Elizabeth reflected on history during last visit to the commonwealth 

Reported by VPM News 

Queen Elizabeth II, who died Thursday at the age of 96 in Scotland, visited the commonwealth several times during her reign. She traveled to Jamestown in 1957 to mark the 350th anniversary of its founding. Sen. Tim Kaine was the governor at the time of the queen’s last visit to the commonwealth. In a statement he said that “[h]er kindness and grace will be missed in the United Kingdom, in Virginia, and across the world.”

Plans are in the works to reopen the former site of the Robert E. Lee monument 

Reported by VPM News’ Jahd Khalil  

Some members of Richmond’s Urban Design Committee gathered Thursday to consider a plan to temporarily fill Lee Circle with mulch pathways, plants, and trees.  Although a member’s emergency meant the committee didn’t have a quorum to meet and vote on the plan, it may still move forward to the Planning Commission later this month.
