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.
