RRHA, City of Richmond and Richmond Police Department partner to enhance safety in public housing communities

To the Richmond Community:

The Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority (RRHA) has always been committed to providing our public housing residents with a safe and healthy living environment. Families should feel protected in and around their homes. Children must have a place to play without fear. In order to stand behind our commitment to your security and to enhance our public safety and crime prevention operations, RRHA, the RRHA Police Department , the City of Richmond and the Richmond Police Department enforce the 'No Trespassing' Policy.

The No Trespassing Policy and Privatized Streets Program was created through a partnership between RRHA, the City of Richmond, the Richmond Police Department and public housing residents to help RRHA ensure safe neighborhoods for public housing families. The No Trespassing Policy and street privatization resulted in the City of Richmond deeding certain interior streets and sidewalks as private property in Creighton Court, Hillside Court, Gilpin Court, Whitcomb Court, Afton Avenue Apartments and Raven Street in Mosby Court. Therefore, only lawfully residing residents or persons visiting with lawful social and business reasons are allowed on that street.

RRHA welcomes you to visit its neighborhoods. This welcome extends not only to lawful guests of residents, but to individuals or groups conducting lawful business on RRHA properties. However, if you have been specifically told by RRHA or the Richmond Police Department that you are banned from RRHA property, then you cannot visit. If you do, you will be considered a trespasser and will be prosecuted as such. We feel this policy protects families from criminal and unsafe activities in the community.

To support the policy, RRHA provides the following for the community: 'No Trespassing' signs are placed on the privatized streets of the mentioned RRHA communities; a brochure, Important Information Regarding theRRHA Trespassing Policy, is available; a map of the community that details the privatized streets and sidewalks is available in the Housing Management Office and RRHA headquarters at 901 Chamberlayne Parkway, and on our Web site.

Please know that it is important for our families and the community to be aware that the enforcement of this policy is an important public safety tool for RRHA, which helps to ensure the protection of families that live within public housing communities.

We thank you for your continued cooperation and support. If you would like additional information regarding the Trespassing Policy please contact us at (804) 780-4344 or e-mail us at
