People Plan Richmond Hill

People Plan Richmond Hill is a project that considers the needs of the community and will result in two important documents – an updated Strategic Plan, which focuses on the goals and aspirations of the people of Richmond Hill and a new Official Plan, which describes land-use policies, such as new housing, businesses, schools, etc.

The People Plan project began with an engagement process where the Town sought input from the community on what their hopes and expectations are for the future of Richmond Hill. Through a wide range of community engagement activities, more than 2,000 members of the community have provided us with their feedback and helped shape Richmond Hill’s future! Information gathered from public consultation events and activities such as the People Plan Launch, Summit and Open Houses, as well as themed Community Roundtables and Online Surveys, in combination with background research results and trend analysis was used as a foundation to develop the new 2009 Strategic Plan: A Plan for People, A Plan for Change, as well as inform the creation of a new Official Plan.
