Vision, Goals and Principles

Vision and Goals

The Partners’ vision for Richmond is a community in which every resident has access to affordable housing, and safe, reliable public transit that connects them to living-wage jobs, quality education, a clean environment, health care and other essential services. A place where community-driven economic development puts existing residents’ needs first, where urban revitalization provides opportunities for local businesses to thrive, and where local policies are part of a regional plan for achieving an equitable and sustainable Bay Area.

Campaign Goals

 

Regional equitable development serves as an alternative to current planning and development practices that often result in displacement and inequalit. Equitable development at the city level means that growth and change provides beneficial outcomes and opportunities for all residents.

General Plan Campaign


The City of Richmond releases draft General Plan

Some REDI recommendations included, but more necessary

The city of Richmond released a draft of the city's General Plan and REDI partners, community members and technical assistance partners have evaluated it. Our campaign work clearly impacted the draft, especially around green jobs, job training, and air quality monitoring. Still, there are many opportunities for our recommendations to be stronger and for some that are totally absent to find inclusion.
