Community Input Requested on Slave Auction Block

It is often said that the City of Fredericksburg is a microcosm of the American story, the good and bad.  The city has an exceptional record/reputation in working through the most challenging chapters in our American history, especially in the later parts of the 20th Century.  Most often we have proven to be a model for citizen engagement, civil discourse, and a place where the competition of ideas is embraced - and becomes the precursor to action. 

Knowing this, City Council engaged in a discussion on pieces of our history, and specifically the future of the slave auction block.  At the August 22 meeting there was concurrence to allow Councilman Frye and Mayor Greenlaw to work with staff on a plan of action.

Council has launched an opportunity for community feedback on the options concerning the future of the slave auction block.  An online input page has been developed for your input and comments through September 25 at noon. 

The link below will take you to the slave auction block page and the online input page.
