We are committed to good planning and zoning to create a more walkable, livable, Richmond area.
Talk of zoning regulations and special use permits can make our eyes glaze over, too. But zoning and the planning documents that shape them are crucial to encouraging healthy communities with mixed-use construction, targeted density, transit-oriented development, complete streets and more. The PSG community is engaged in master plan updates and implementation across the Richmond region. And you can be, too.
