Many ways to participate

Divider text here
Richmond 300 will be developed with extensive community engagement. As such, there will be numerous ways to participate - some more time-intensive than others. The entire engagement process is outlined in the Draft Process and Engagement Plan found here.

Advisory Council

Sub-committee of the City Planning Commission

The Advisory Coucil is an adhoc sub-committee of the City Planning Commission. The Advisory Team serves as 1) a sounding board to help shape the content of Richmond 300; and 2) liaisons to the community at large by helping to build awareness of and participating in the plan update process. The Advisory Council is the most intensive way to be engaged in the Master Plan process. The team has 21 members (two of which are City Planning Commission members). The remaining members were selected via an open call. 

The Advisory Council members are: Rodney Poole (Chair), Max Hepp-Buchanan (Vice-Chair), Burt Pinnock (Vice-Chair), Jonathan Bibbs, Cyane Crump, LaToya Gray, Bernard Harkless, Ashley Hawkins, Elyana Javaheri, Joyce Knight, Preston Lloyd, Louise Lockett, Monica Lozano, Jer-Mykeal McCoy, Jennifer Mullen, Kendra Norrell, Cailtlin O’Dwyer, Damian Pitt, Ted Ukrop, Meredith Weiss, and Olivya Wilson.

Advisory Council Committees

Sub-committees to the Advisory Council

In 2018, the Advisory Council will establish Advisory Council Committees that will be based on topics that emerge through community conversations. The Advisory Council Committees will be comprised of community members and City staff. Advisory Council Committees will be critical in shaping the goals, strategies, and actions that will comprise the Master Plan. 

If you're interested in joining an Advisory Council Committee, add your name to the Richmond 300 email list ( or follow us on Facebook so you are notified when the Committees are established.


Official Volunteers

The Ambassadors are volunteers that assist in spreading the word about the Master Plan and also assist by staffing community events (such as the Town Halls, community events, community meetings, mobile meeting, etc.). The city staff is working out the exact details of the Richmond 300 Ambassador program, but we'd like to begin gathering a cadre of Ambassadors now. We'll have an Ambassador orientation sometime soon. 

If you are interested in becoming an Ambassador, send an email to with "Ambassador" in the subject. 

Community Consultations

We will host community consultations throughout the process. Please join our mailing list and follow us on Facebook so you are notified when the Town Halls are scheduled.

Mobile Meetings

We know that large-format community consultations do not reach all audiences. We will have mobile meetings to help reach traditionally under-represented populations.

Social Media

We established Instagram and Facebook accounts as another way to reach our constituents. Follow us @richmond300 and use the hashtag #richmond300 when posting about the Master Plan.
