OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN
The City of Richmond’s Official Community Plan (“OCP”) was adopted in 2012 to take the City to 2041. The vision is that in 2041, Richmond becomes a place of great spaces and experiences, whose greatest assets include its thriving downtown, diversified economy and connected neighbourhoods. In a range of OCP background studies of the fifteen Planning Areas, certain themes emerged. One that resonates with the purpose of this project is to “encourage office uses in the City Centre”.
