Join us for this webinar to learn about Richmond 300: A Guide for Growth, the new city-wide Master Plan for the City of Richmond. Since the last Master Plan was adopted in 2001, Richmond has grown by 30,000 people. The new Master Plan is asking: when Richmond turns 300 years-old in 2037, what should the City look and feel like? Join this webinar to hear Marianne Pitts, Maritza Pechin and William Palmquist discuss: 1) how one mid-size city in Virginia is planning for growth, 2) how Richmond has changed since 2001, and 3) the process to engage a representative cross-section of Richmonders in this once-in-a-generation public process.
