(This amendment provides $75,000 the first year from the general fund to the City of Petersburg for the Historic Battersea, which is located in the City of Petersburg. The requested funds are targeted for repairs to Battersea, a city-owned historic site that is comprised of Palladian-style residence constructed circa 1768, and 37 acres of land adjoining the Appomattox River. The city has owned the site since 1985, and has undertaken the stabilization of the buildings and grounds. Battersea is recognized as a Virginia and National Historic landmark. This funding will provide the groundwork for a partnership between the city and a statewide nonprofit foundation that will ensure the preservation and stewardship of the Historic Battersea.)
