Next Thurday, May 13, Roanoke’s new City Manager, Chris Morrill, will sit down with us for an open conversation about Raleigh Court. I’m sure Chris will have a few words of introduction, but, since he’s still unpacking boxes here in his new digs, he’ll mostly be listening.
We’ve arranged an all-star cast of talkers to let Mr. Morrill in on the details of the neighborhood.
• Dr. Tony Stavola, a decades-long resident and Regional Medical Director for Carilion, will share his wisdom on the state of our schools and on the history and work of the Civic League.
• Brenda McDaniel, another past president of the Civic League and current Executive Director of Alumni and Donor Relations at Hollins, will talk about why people are so darn attracted to the neighborhood.
• Christa Stephens, of Black Dog Salvage, will expound on the successes and plans of the Grandin Village business community.
• Melissa Morgan, historic real estate specialist and owner of Renaissance Real Estate, will talk about the issues facing the neighborhood housing market.
Mr. Morrill will also take questions from attendees. Don’t miss this chance to meet the new City Manager and engage in an open conversation about our great community.
Thursday, May 13, 7 pm at Christ Lutheran Church.
