(This amendment provides $25,000 the first year from the general fund to the Friends of the Lower Appomattox River. The requested funds would be used for the completion of a pedestrian access from Virginia State University to the Historic Olde Towne Area of Petersburg as well as connecting to the historic Pocahontas Island community that was the site of the largest "free black" community in the U.S. during the Civil War. The request would provide the necessary funds to design, conduct environmental studies and obtain permitting for the final phase of construction.)
