Richmond 300 - Visioning Open House Survey 
The Dept. of Planning and Development Review is developing a new city-wide Master Plan, which will be called Richmond 300: A Guide for Growth

This survey is a virtual version of the content presented at the open houses (September 20-29, 2018) and will be used to collect input and ideas from people who are unable to attend the open houses. 

Read the Insights Report and explore over 30 interactive maps to learn more about the Master Plan process and our city.

Encourage your friends to fill out the survey too. The survey will close on October 31, 2018 at 11:59 P.M.

Big Ideas
The Master Plan includes policy recommendations related to all the topics listed below (click on the name of the topic to learn more about each topic). You do not need provide a "big idea(s)" for each of the topics, just the ones in which you are most interested.
New Growth
How much will we grow by 2037? In 2017 the City's population was approximately 227,000. By 2037 will the population hit 260,000 (0.76% growth rate), 300,000 (1.57% growth rate) or 340,000 (2.5% growth rate)? Between 2010 and 2015, Richmond's annual growth rate was 1.5%. No one truly knows how much we will grow in the next 20 years but we can plan for our growing population.


The Richmond 300: A Guide for Growth plan will help us plan for the orderly harmonious growth of our city. We are just beginning to develop the update to the city-wide Master Plan. Join us in a conversation on how we will grow by thinking about where new residents might live.

Your Vision
In 2037, Richmond will be celebrating its 300th birthday as a platted city. When we turn 300 years old as a city, how do we want our city to look and feel? Remember, it took 280 years to get the city we have today so we can't expect to change everything in just 20 years.
