The amendment requires that the additional general fund dollars be transferred to the City of Petersburg for this purpose. When completed, this dredging project will restore the Appomattox River channel as a navigable waterway, presenting the possibilty of increased commercial and recreational traffic along the river for the City of Petersburg and the surrounding regions. The City of Petersburg has been pursuing this project since 1984, and believes that in concert with other activities the city is sponsoring could result in the revitalization of its downtown.)
