 Radford University's been under fire a bit, and Michael Hemphill provided a response in today's Roanoke Times Editorial section. There are three sides to every story - the truth, the lie, and the in-between - but I still contend that Radford's a university on the move; and that can only be good for the rest of the City. Bullseye.

Mentioned this a few weeks ago ... Radford University is a school on the move.  I think these are steps in the right direction.  For years, Radford's been a university that was just there - little growth, no real focus or direction into what the vision for the university is.  It appears they've solved that problem.  And the City of Radford will benefit from that direction - I can't find studies to support this, but my experience - limited as it may be - is that communities that are home to four-year and graduate institutions rank higher in terms of quality of life and economic resources, infrastructure, and the like. Any Radford residents care to chime in on this?

At last night's Town Council meeting, Radford got two pieces of business right ... they passed - unanimously, I might add - a rezoning for Tyler Place, a five-story mixed use development with a five-story garage.  They also voted - again unanimously - to begin inspecting rental housing in two areas of the city. Can't We All Just Get Along Why is unanimous important?  Because it's nice to see a Town Council actually agree on something that's  good for the citizens they serve.   Tyler Place has the opportunity to provide locals, as well as the university population, a space that's unique to our region - let's hope they don't change their minds midstream like Blacksburg and end up with several lawsuits on their hands. Additionally, there's a need thro...

Earlier in the week, I posted the Christiansburg 2007 Water Quality Report.  Following up on that today is Radford's 2007 Water Quality Report.  For the third consecutive year, Radford's Water Treatment Plant has received Virginia's Excellence in Waterworks Performance Award from the VA Department of Health.  Looks like the water's fine - there were no violations among the water samples tested.  You can download the entire report here: Download annual_drinking_water_quality_report.pdf Coming up next week ... Blacksburg's 2007 Water Quality Report. If you enjoyed this post, why not leave a comment and subscribe via RSS or email here to be sure you don't miss the next post?
