Richmond District looks to engage residents in neighborhood planning

West side neighbors are invited to a community strategy session next week to help develop future planning priorities for the Richmond District.

The community conversation will take place at the Richmond Branch Library from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Dec. 10. Residents, business owners and those who work in the neighborhood are encouraged to share their thoughts for strengthening the quality of life in the area.

This meeting will discuss the findings of a community needs assessment survey taken in October 2015. The survey yielded 1,400 responses by January, and those findings are now compiled into the Community Needs Assessment Survey Report.

City officials will share the survey report findings to solicit additional feedback to develop a shared vision that will help set priorities and policies to address neighborhood needs and objectives. The effort is part of a three-part analysis to create a planning guide for the district’s future.

City officials hope to finalize the Richmond District Strategy by early next year. The strategy will guide city officials for a series of solutions, policies and funding priorities to bring the objectives and goals to reality.
