RICHFIELD 2040 - BUILT FOR THE FUTURE!

Throughout 2017-2018, City staff and the Comprehensive Plan Task Force have worked on updating the Comprehensive Plan.  This Plan serves as a road map to inform decisions regarding land use, transportation, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, parks, utilities, and public facilities.  The Plan is future-oriented – looking out at what Richfield could be in 2040, and setting goals and policies to help us reach that future vision.

Follow the City on Facebook and check this page often for more information on how you can participate.  In addition to open house meetings, online surveys, and mapping tools, City staff and Steering Committee members held pop-up at community events, bus stops, parks, etc. with surveys and information to share.

CURRENT COMPREHENSIVE PLAN

Richfield's Comprehensive Plan is intended to provide a long-term vision, complete with strategic goals, objectives, policies and recommendations, that will guide land use development and policies over the next 10 to 20 years.  Cities use their comprehensive plan like a road map to help inform decisions regarding land use, transportation, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, parks, utilities and public facilities.  It is in the preparation of this document that the community can have the most important impact on the future of Richfield. The current plan was adopted by the City Council in February 2009.
