Community Input Requested for Richmond 300, the City’s Master Plan Update
The City of Richmond’s Department of Planning and Development Review (PDR) seeks to once again engage the Richmond community in the development of the updated city master plan.
Richmond 300: A Guide for Growth, the city’s new master plan, is entering the next community engagement stage of development. The plan’s aim is to establish a 20-year vision for the city’s growth, factoring in extensive community input.
Last fall, residents of Richmond shared their vision for the future of the city. Now, Richmonders can see and provide feedback on how their ideas have been incorporated into a vision for the city in 2037, the component goals necessary to create that vision and the draft land uses, transportation connections and strategies needed to achieve those goals.
From September 23 to November 3, community members can provide their thoughts at their convenience via any of the following four methods:
Attend a Richmond 300 Forum: Each forum will include a 30-minute presentation and 60 minutes of questions and answers. The information presented in each forum will be identical and children are welcome to attend. Spanish-language translators will also be available. If participants have a disability and require accommodation in order to fully participate in the forum, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by September 23 to arrange accommodations.
