Community Information Sessions
The City of Richmond is hosting a series of Community Information Sessions to better inform and engage its community members. The new sessions provide access to a wide range of information on City plans, policies and initiatives that guide development and how they are being implemented to address growth and change in the community. The topic areas include:
Planning & DevelopmentThrough the development of policies and guidelines for new development the City can ensure new growth meets the needs of the growing community in a manner that is sensitive to existing development.
TransportationIn cooperation with TransLink and other agencies the City seeks to improve the transportation network by expanding opportunities for transit, cycling and walking, as well as goods movement.
Affordable HousingBy establishing clear policies and incentives to increase the amount of affordable housing in the City, the housing stock can better serve the needs of the diverse and growing community.
SustainabilityThe City is taking action to make Richmond a sustainable place to call home, for now and years to come. Efforts include energy effi cient buildings, district energy and environmental protection.
