Portland and 66th Sub-area Study

Portland & 66th Sub-Area Study

The 2040 Richfield Comprehensive Plan recognizes Veterans Memorial Park as one of the City’s premier destinations and envisions ways to strengthen development in the area.  The Comprehensive Plan guides land in the vicinity of the Park for a mix of uses, including medium to high-density residential and community commercial.  The Plan does not provide guidance about how private redevelopment in the area will interact with Veterans Park.

To help ensure that private investments work in harmony with major public amenities and upcoming investments (D-Line Bus Rapid Transit), the City commissioned a study to determine the appropriate land use controls for the area (in the map shown below).  This study is being led by the consultant group HKGi.

We want your input!  What do you love about Veterans Park? How can private investment in the area enhance these natural amenities and invite new users to enjoy this jewel of the City?  We invite you to learn more about this project, virtually explore a variety of development types, and share your thoughts via our Portland & 66th Sub-Area Study site
