    Lynchburg City Council will conduct its October 28 Work Session at the Jefferson Park Community Center, 405 York Street at 4:00 p.m., instead of at its normal City Council Chamber location. The meeting is open to the public and will be recorded and shown on the City’s LTV Comcast Channel 15 at a later date. Due to a lack of agenda items, there will not be a 7:30 p.m. Council meeting.

    Media Note: A copy of the Council Agenda may be found here.

    The Eighth Street stairs will be closed to all pedestrian traffic until November 24, 2014 in order for repairs to be made on the retaining walls. Pedestrians should follow the detour signs to either Seventh Street or Monument Terrace or use the public elevator during this repair project.

    The City of Lynchburg wants to hear from you, and to make it easier, a brand new online tool, “Lynchburg is Listening,” is being launched.  “Lynchburg is Listening” gives residents the opportunity to be heard through online discussions on projects, informal surveys, and posting of ideas through an easy-to-use interface.  This new application will also help facilitate ideas among members of the community. 

    On July 23, 2013, the State Board of Elections (SBE), in partnership with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), launched online voter registration as a result of recently enacted legislation sponsored by Delegate David Ramadan (HB2341). Eligible citizens of the Commonwealth are now able to submit a voter registration application or update their registration information online. 

    The Lynchburg Public Library is currently conducting a survey to ask the community what type of library and library services it wishes to have. The survey includes questions about the type of changes patrons would like to see at the Library, what services they use, and other questions directed at individuals who currently do not use the Library.
