About Accessibility Services
The Accessibility section works to ensure that City services are open, accessible and appropriate for all; regardless of income or ability. Accessibility is always looking for opportunities to reduce barriers to participation for all individuals in the community. Together we can strive to make Richmond even more accessible for all who live, work and visit here.
