We welcome any questions regarding residency or if you're visiting our great city. Lynchburg residents—long time residents and newcomers alike—appreciate the City as a great place to live, to raise a family, to learn, and to work and prosper. People talk about the city in many ways—as a City of trees and a City of hills, as a community rich in history and diverse in culture. As the dynamic center of a growing region, the City is well known for its quality of life and economic vitality. Residents enjoy the City’s rare combination of small town charm and big city offerings. Since its founding on the banks of the James River through its development as a regional center of business and culture, Lynchburg continues to inspire in its residents a thoughtful concern for the future and a practice of civic activism. Lynchburg takes pride in being a sustainable community; one that protects and manages its limited natural, historical, and cultural resources in such a way that the community environment, which its residents value and which sustains us today, will sustain future generations.

Honored and remembered. We are grateful for your your ultimate sacrifice.

HONOR | As we head into the Memorial Day weekend, let us reflect on the tremendous price that was paid by the brave men and women who gave their lives in service to our country. Through the sounding of Taps, members of The United States Air Force Band solemnly render honor to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

A long-held musical tradition at military funerals, the music of Taps originated from a Civil War bugle call entitled, “Extinguish Lights”. A plaintive call, the sounding of Taps signals the end of the fallen serviceman’s duty and is the final tribute from a grateful nation.

To those who have given the last full measure of devotion, we honor your service, pay tribute to your lives, and thank you for your selfless sacrifice.

We'd like to thank Mr. Matthew Priest, Director of Culpeper National Cemetery, all of the staff at Culpeper National Cemetery, as well as Ms. Richelle Taylor, Public Affairs Specialist with the Department of Veteran Affair’s National Cemetery Administration, for their help making this tribute possible.

The City of Lynchburg has closed the Percival’s Island earthen trail and the beach because of a safety concern with the rising James River due to the recent excessive rainfall. Both will remain closed until further notice. The Department of Parks and Recreation is also recommending people exercise caution while using other urban trails throughout the city as creeks may also be overflowing their banks.

The City is also cautioning people who may want to use the river this weekend for recreation that the water is fast moving and can be extremely dangerous. This condition is expected to remain treacherous over the next several days. Please exercise extreme caution.

They're moving right along with the construction on Main Street ... here's what to expect over the next several months.

Here's the latest on the Main Street Renewal project: crews have been taking advantage of the decrease in vehicle & pedestrian traffic to get a lot accomplished! 95% of the electrical boxes are in the ground & 100% of the main waterline is in the street! Upcoming work will be on electrical conduits, light poles, water service tie-ins & installation of curbing, sidewalk, & planter beds. #renewlyh

The virus that causes COVID-19 can spread from a person before they have symptoms. Take action to slow the spread by wearing a cloth face covering in public spaces, keeping at least 6 feet of physical distance, and frequently washing your hands.

A cloth face covering can be made from items around your home, such as a scarf or cloth napkin. Make sure the covering reaches above your nose and below your chin.

So still waiting for the Mayor's response to the damage caused at a local restaurant and threats to burn it down, the rioting, the damage, damage to a police vehicle, and injuries sustained by the officers. Around 8:50am I was informed that "The Mayor and other City officials will have a statement later today." Still waiting.
today I see that the city police invited a probably racist illegal militia group into the city fully armed with automatic weapons, no vetting as to their motives, background or training to help back them up during a fracas at fifth and federal. Tensions are high enough. The optics of this alone are horrible.. Yeah lets bring in a bunch of good ol boys armed to the teeth from Campbell county to help oppress black folks downtown. The legality of it.. well it was an illegal act to bring them in. These jackasses should be arrested and shut down for operating an illegal militia organization, not given a place at the table. Someone at the LPD should be fired today.

Why was this guy working on Easter Sunday and was he getting holiday pay 
In view of the recent charges against visitors to the LU campus could you please inform the public where the private boundaries are to the University and which streets there are public property. I do not want anyone else to be charged with trespassing. Thank you.
I was just wondering for those of us who can & do vote, there's a May election coming up. How will that work with the Stay at Home Order in place through June?
Why are businesses like JCrew Distribution Center still open? Seriously. NOT essential and putting all their workers at risk, who are then putting others in the community at risk including their own families. No way to keep workers 6 feet apart in that type of environment. Just one example of NON-ESSENTIAL workers being forced to put themselves at risk because they fear losing their job if they don't show up. PLEASE address this issue publicly, firmly, and clearly. CLOSE ALL NON-ESSENTIAL businesses, period. If a clothing boutique has to be limited to 10 customers and keep them 6 ft apart, then a clothing distributor should also. There are A LOT of people in these types of environments throughout the state.
Just thought I’d share this video of my little one waiting for the garbage truck to come to our house. Every Monday we wave and yell hello to them and they always wave and honk their horn for my boys. It makes our day. Thank you for all that you do! You’re a hero to my little ones 🙂
FOR EMPLOYEES of Liberty University: This is from an earlier workplace law site:https://www.shrm.org/…/coronavirus-information-and-faqs.aspx Is there an obligation to accommodate employees who do not want to work in public-facing positions due to risk of infection? There may be an obligation to accommodate such employees if there is some objective evidence that they could potentially be exposed to individuals who may be( potentially infectious.) Employees should not be disciplined for refusing to work if they believe that there is a risk of infection because making such a complaint may be a protected activity. If the employer can establish that there is no basis for any exposure to the disease, the employee does not have to be paid during the time period the employee refuses to work.
