  38. 38. City of HopewellWhere the Two Rivers Meet
  39. 39. Ø Hopewell, and earlier City Point owes its existence to itslocation overlooking the James and Appomattox Rivers.Ø City Point, the oldest part of Hopewell, was founded in 1613 bySir Thomas Dale.Ø City Point witnessed Revolutionary War skirmishes fought onits banks.Ø 1864-1865, General Ulysses S. Grant directed the 10-monthSiege of Petersburg from the grounds of AppomattoxPlantation at City Point.Ø President Lincoln spent two of the last three weeks of his life atCity Point. He visited on March 24-April 8, 1865.
  40. 40. City Point became one of the busiest ports in the world during theAmerican Civil War with 40 steamers, 75 sailing ships and 100barges each day.
  41. 41. Making History in City PointThe PeacemakersPresident Abraham Lincoln meets with Union generals Grant and Sherman on theRiver Queen at City Point to plan the last stages of the Civil War.
  42. 42. HOPEWELL TODAYPublic-Private Downtown Activity - $11.9 million> Beacon Theatre - $5.9 million total renovation of 640-seat art deco theatre and multipurposeperforming arts center to open the end of 2013> John Randolph Medical Center - $2.0 million external capital improvements> City Marina - $4.0 million in improvements> Hopewell Downtown Partnership – Creation of a non-profit organization by the City Councildedicated to improving Downtown Hopewell> Main Street Designation – In 2012 Hopewell became 1 of 25 designated Main Streetcommunities in Virginia
  43. 43. Hopewell is home to several major national and internationalindustries such as:Ø Honeywell International – A world-class manufacturer of qualitychemical products and the Hopewell plant is the worlds largestsingle site producer of caprolactam.Ø Ashland, Inc. - One of the worlds leading specialty chemicalcompanies whose chemistry is used every day in applications fromautomotive, food and beverages, personal care products,pharmaceuticals, and paper and tissue to durable goods.Ø Evonik Goldschmidt - Multinational specialty chemicalmanufacturer serving the automotive, plastics, pharmaceutical, andother industries.Ø Rock-Tenn - One of North Americas leading producers ofcorrugated and consumer packaging and recycling solutions.
  44. 44. HOPEWELL REGIONAL WASTE TREATMENT FACILITY> Thanks to a strong city-industry partnership the 2013 General Assemblybudget included $5.0 million to help upgrade the regional plant to removeharmful nutrients to help protect the Chesapeake Bay.> 2012 completed $28.0 million expansion and upgrades of domestictreatment to accommodate growth, specifically Fort Lee. Upgrades alsoeliminated most of the City sewer overflow problems. This work and anaggressive infiltration/inflow construction program has greatly enhancedthe underground infrastructure.> The plant is currently performing pilot testing of new nitrogen removaltechnologies to be incorporated into the design of Phase 2 project.Estimated at $75.0 million – this project will be the largest upgrade in theplant’s history.
  45. 45. WHAT’S NEXT……..> Work with Petersburg National Battlefield Park to enhance historic and recreationamenities at City Point – increase attendance> Continue to plan river walk along James and Appomattox rivers> Develop speaker series at the Beacon Theatre based on Lincoln at City Point> Participate in historic James River and Chesapeake Bay cruise to and from Richmond> Create water recreation designation at City Marina and develop adjoining city-ownedproperty> Return River Queen to City Point
  46. 46. President Lincoln and VirginiaPresident Lincoln finally departed from City Point, Virginia at 11 p.m. Saturday, April 8, 1865. Hebelieved he had spent two momentous weeks, probably two of the most remarkable andinteresting, almost inconceivable weeks of his life. He was feeling better than he had felt duringhis entire presidency.While at City Point on board of the River Queen, President Lincoln had a premonition of hisown death, which proved tragic when he returned to Washington and was assassinated sixdays later.

  56. 56. Current SituationLooking in the near future, the Partnership needs to findsolutions to widen and deepen the James River toaccommodate ships up to 630 ft LOA and 100 ft beam.Additionally, the 24-foot James River draft restriction alsoshould be looked at for improvement. Every ton of cargonot loaded in Hopewell due to the 24-foot restriction hasto be barged to Norfolk for transloading to a warehouseand then to a vessel after loading in Hopewell to top offto the vessel’s loaded draft. An improved draft of 25 feetwould mean approx. 1700 NT of additional cargo loadedin Hopewell on a vessel at a savings to Honeywell of$20,000 per vessel.

  65. 65. BUILDING STRONG®US Army Corps of Engineers – Norfolk DistrictJames River Watershed Identified as aWatershed/Systems-Based Budget Opportunity• Watershed-Based Budget defined as a “sustainable, five-yearset of prioritized and performance-based project-levelinvestment options”.• The James River watershed includes:• Federal Flood Risk Management• Navigation• Environmental Restoration• Regulatory permitting actions• Flood Plain Management Services• Planning Assistance to State• Involves many partners, stakeholders, and customers.4
  66. 66. BUILDING STRONG®US Army Corps of Engineers – Norfolk DistrictJames River Pilot StudyFY14 Budget Submission• Developed a strategy to manage and fund projects in the James Riverwatershed by:• Identifying past 5-year funding for GI, CG, CAP, and O&M• Prioritizing FY-14 Work Packages among the Business Lines• Considering needs of stakeholders, bare-bones O&M, and NationalObjectives• The result attempts to optimize the use of limited fiscal resources, whileproviding the greatest benefit to customers and the nation.• Considered how projects among Business Lines were connected andgave special weighting to Comprehensive James River Basin Study• Important benefit of watershed budgeting would be to have ability tomove funds among Business Lines to achieve greatest benefits5

  69. 69. BUILDING STRONG®US Army Corps of Engineers – Norfolk District 8Challenges• How to objectively assign relative value to projects amongBusiness Lines• How to fairly incorporate stakeholder input• How to consider projects or initiatives by other Federal, state,and local agencies• How to integrate the Regulatory Program permits within in thespecific watershed area• How to address cost-shared vs. non cost-shared items• Inability to share budgetary information with outside interests
