(This amendment provides $75,000 from the general fund in fiscal year 2023 for preservation and planning of the historic Moore Street School in Richmond City. In 1886-87, a sixteen-classroom, two-story brick school was built "to afford accommodation for the outlying schools in the neighborhood of Brook Avenue." The entrance to the school was on Moore Street; hence the name Moore School or, more often, Moore Street School. This building, one of seven schools built between 1887-1898, is said to be the only one retaining much of the original "interior and exterior character," and has been described as one of the best examples of the period still publicly owned. Objective of the planning is to repurpose a decaying Moore Street School into a center for profitable learning and personal development opportunities for multiple communities.)
