(This amendment provides $2.5 million GF in the second year to the Science Museum of Virginia to convert a six-acre parcel of a mostly paved, impervious surface parking lot into a community green space. In addition, the Science Museum of Virginia also seeks authority to dedicate $5.0 million in private funding for the remainder of the project. Situated on the Pulse corridor and a key element of the Richmond 300 Plan, this project will transform the area in front of the Museum into a vibrant and active community resource to serve the needs of a diverse, growing citizenry.)
