Ridgely’s Record

Ridgely’s Delight Association (RDA) Community Meeting — Wednesday, March 4

Our monthly meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 4, starting at 7 p.m. in the back dining room of Frank & Nic’s West End Grille (511 W. Pratt St.).

You are encouraged to attend if you live, own property or a business in Ridgely’s Delight. The RDA board meeting will immediately follow the community meeting.

As part of the agenda, we will be discussing the city’s planning efforts to place electric vehicle charging stations in neighborhoods in the future. As part of this effort, we expect that there will be a pilot run to ensure that the planning is complete and works as expected before their plans are rolled out city-wide. Once the community has this information, we anticipate that there will be a motion offered to see if the community wants to request that Ridgely’s be a pilot site.
