We're unlocking our potential to MAKE IT RICHMOND
What is a comprehensive plan,
and why should it matter to me?
At its core, a comprehensive plan is a vision for the future at a community scale. Comprehensive plans are created by and for the community to record shared goals and desires for themselves and their fellow community members.
A comprehensive plan examines what a community is, where it came from, and crafts a coordinated road map for the future. This road map guides the growth and development of the community for the next 10 to 20 years, and is revisited to ensure its relevance.
What does the planning process look like?
The planning process will take approximately eight months and consist of six primary phases: from Discover, where a baseline understanding of Richmond is developed, to Engage where the community shares their voice, to Plan and Refine when the actual road map for the future of topics like development, connectivity, and housing are recorded, to Implement and Sustain when the new Comprehensive Plan is put to work.
