PSG is committed to the revitalization of the Richmond region through robust public process. Decisions made after an inclusive and transparent process enjoy a greater sense of legitimacy and preserve our role as citizens in our democratic society.
That means advocating for open data, transparency, user-friendly municipal websites, open meetings, a robust Freedom of Information Act and processes that favor citizen input and engagement at all stages of neighborhood building.
