Richmond Hill Centre Secondary Plan

What is the Richmond Hill Centre?

The Richmond Hill Centre (RHC) is an intensification area located around the intersection of Yonge Street and Highway 7.

What is the RHC Secondary Plan?

With the major investments occurring in public transit in and around the Centre, Richmond Hill is developing a Secondary Plan to coordinate the expected growth in this area. The Secondary Plan will shape the vision for the urban centre with a balance of residential and commercial uses where people can live, work, and play. It will also support the creation of public spaces, walkable streets, and transit-oriented development.
