About the Committee
VCU liaison serves on the VCU Committee for Government and Community Affairs. This VCU committee meets quarterly and is comprised of representatives form the university, adjoining neighborhood and civic associations, and neighboring business. The purpose is to encourage dialogue and communication among the many groups of people who share working, living, and playing space in the Fan with the long-range goal of fostering better neighbor relations. Most recently, the need for more police presence in the densely populated Lower Fan has led to the VCU police now being permitted to patrol the Lower Fan as far west as Lombardy Street. Richmond city police retain jurisdiction in the area, but the cooperation of the VCU police helps to improve the quality of life in our neighborhood.
