Mayor Jones Postpones Kyle Long Navy Jersey City Jon Bostic Women Jersey Council

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) On Wednesday, Mayor Jones postponed the Richmond City Council meeting scheduled for Thursday, where he and city leaders were slated to discuss his controversial ballpark plan. "I have not seen a bolder plan in my years in the city of Richmond."Jones said withdrawing his plan will allow him more time to educate City Council what his vision is really about."We want to be sure that before it's voted on. City Council has an opportunity to have all of the information."The original plan was in jeopardy after two councilmen announced Friday they planned to cast votes against it. A total of five out of nine council members had pledged to vote against the plan. "But at this time, there is a growing consensus that this slow drip approach of information is not helpful to the City of Richmond. Instead, it is increasingly interfering with more urgent matters that Richmond City Council needs to resolve."Councilman Baliles said, "This proposal is still, after seven months, fundamentally incomplete and continues to unravel with almost every presentation. We have kept open minds on this plan since before Thanksgiving, but the Kyle Long Kids Jersey time has come for us to move on to more pressing matters. We can always revisit this or any other plan at a later date."If approved, plans for the Shockoe Bottom ballpark and slavery museum would cost close to $100 million. On Wednesday, Delegate Manoli Loupassi told ABC 8News he was pushing for less secrecy if the state funds this project. Doing that would hurt Richmond by leaving money on the table," he wrote. "That's because keeping the ballpark on the Boulevard would restrict the revenue producing potential of our most valuable piece of under utilized land. That's a bad business decision, and it demonstrates a failure to consider the needs of the city as a whole."Mayor Jones went on to say he feels the trust he has worked to build with City Council members has been damaged, and that he is surprised they want to "kill" the project without first understanding all the details."The reaction of some Council members reminds me of some initial reactions so the Redskins Training Camp and other economic development initiatives with Bon Secours," Mayor Jones said in a statement. "Many people did not recognize the benefit these projects would bring to our economy, but they have proven to be big successes. That's why Richmond will have two NFL teams playing here this summer. I don't think that's my place," he said. "Obviously now this is a political arena, and I don't play that arena. We play in the ballpark.
