Richmond approves new Official Community Plan

In a 7-0 vote Monday night, city council approved the new Official Community Plan following a public hearing at city hall.

The plan, which guides development in Richmond to 2041, envisions Richmond's population growing by 80,000—to 280,000 residents—in 30 years. Sustainability is key to the new document, which also envisions vehicle trips being cut by nearly half and greater use of public transit.

The city last updated the plan in 1999. The updated plan took three years to develop
