Updated February 28, 2023: Please see below for new pop up event on Sunday, April 2 and new survey deadline of Sunday, April 9, 2023.
The City of Richmond is seeking public input as it creates a Community Wayfinding Strategy to help residents and visitors navigate through Richmond with ease—by foot, on wheels or via public transit. From now until March 26, there will be a number of opportunities to share feedback, both in person and online.
Wayfinding connects people to their surroundings and helps them find their way—for example, through directional signage and visual landmarks. Wayfinding can also promote attractions, places of special interest and the best routes for moving through the city.
“As Richmond grows as a place to live and visit, the City wants to unify and enhance Richmond as a vibrant destination through improved wayfinding,” said Mayor Malcolm Brodie. “We encourage input from residents and stakeholders, whose ideas and priorities will shape the Community Wayfinding Strategy that will help elevate the city experience for residents, visitors and newcomers.”
There are various ways the public can share their input in February and March 2023:
