Richmond is Growing…
Recent census data confirmed that Richmond has grown over 9% in the last decade. Our population is expanding, particularly in the City Centre. With a strong business sector, our family-oriented city boasts a population that is relatively healthy, well-educated and diverse. Through sound planning, our financial base is solid and our tax rates comparatively reasonable.
Yet Richmond faces many challenges, including:
- How do we support future growth with adequate infrastructure including transportation and recreation?
- How do we keep the City Centre liveable with facilities and recreational space?
- How do we ensure that we improve our environment especially as Richmond continues to grow?
- How do we further strengthen our business sector and provide many more jobs?
- How do we provide better linkages with the Asia-Pacific region to be a destination for business and tourism?
- How can we better work with our partners, whether in the community or other levels of government to support our goals?
- How do we celebrate and empower our many volunteers as they improve our quality of life?
- How can we provide a safe, diverse and sustainable community particularly for a population that is aging?
These and many other issues will be addressed in the 2011-2014 City Council term. I am always pleased to hear your views on matters of civic interest. You can easily contact me at Richmond City Hall or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The election may be over, but I invite you to stay connected with me on Twitter, Facebook, or YouTube.
