What we do

Our Mission

To educate and engage the communities in the Richmond region to work together to improve our quality of life by guiding where and how we grow.

Our Vision

  • A Richmond region connected by vibrant, vocal citizen groups in each of the 9 localities, monitoring and influencing where and how our communities grow and championing strong public participation in local planning.
  • An educated and engaged business community actively pursuing an economic model that strengthens the communities it serves.
  • A Richmond region unified through smarter growth: reinvestment in our existing infrastructure, preservation of our farms, forests, and open spaces, and linked land use and transportation solutions.
