    We are asking all Richmond residents to participate in our 2015 Community Needs Assessment - a project to collect the thoughts, experiences and opinions on current Richmond parks and trails, opportunities for recreation and sports, arts, culture and heritage, as well as childcare.

    Your input will help us complete the assessment which will identify satisfaction levels, unmet needs and barriers to participation, and help identify recommendations for addressing gaps.

    You have until midnight, June 30, 2015 to complete this survey. Your response and opinions are critical in helping us make better informed decisions about facilities, services, and programs.

    Thank you and let's get started.

    The Minoru Civic Precinct is the next step in the evolution of Minoru Park, developing a legacy for the residents of Richmond. In the heart of the precinct will be Minoru Complex, a new integrated, multi-purpose complex being planned in the southwest area of Minoru Park. The facility will include a new aquatic centre, new older adult centre, a sports and fitness component and space for other recreation and community programs and services.

    Another exciting milestone has been reached in the development of the Minoru Complex, with the endorsement of the Minoru Complex Public Realm Concept Plan on February 23.

    Council approval of the design concept now allows staff and the architects to move forward with detailed design of the public realm in tandem with that of the facility.
