    Iwould like toknow what is Complete Communities. Is it the ones with high walkability to all services the community needs(groceries, schools, pharmacies, etc.)? why do we have so many places where you have to hop on a car to by a jug of milk or a band -aid? If people can walk, the car circulation will drop, for sure.

    Thank you for your question. A complete community (sometimes called a compact community) is generally understood to be one that takes an integrated approach to land use planning, transportation, and community design. The aim, as you suggested, is that most residents’ needs and many desires (including housing options, employment, education, shopping, recreation, and cultural and social pursuits) are met within a short travel distance. This allows emphasis to be shifted away from single-occupancy vehicle use and towards the provision of a more appealing and healthy, pedestrian-friendly and transit -oriented environment. Measures aimed at supporting Richmond’s ongoing transition to a more complete community are fundamental to the City’s vision and policies.
