The City of Richmond is updating its Social Development Strategy and is seeking input from those who live and work in Richmond on how we can build a more inclusive and thriving community. The updated Strategy will provide an overarching framework for the City and its partners to address the social needs of Richmond’s diverse population over the next 10 years. 

The public will have the following ways to provide feedback and to help shape the development of a draft strategy from Monday, June 5 to Sunday, July 2, 2023: 

  • Online – Visit to learn more and complete a survey. The deadline to submit an online survey is Sunday, July 2 at 11:59 p.m.
