RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Thursday is the deadline for proposals on a new city jail.

Ideas are being welcomed after people in several South Richmond neighborhoods say they'll fight a new jail on Commerce Road.

The city is encouraging people to submit other options, if they don't like the current one.
