A critical component of the Comprehensive Parks Master Plan process is to engage Richmond residents. On Wednesday March 11th the first of three public meetings was held at Lingle Hall (lower level of Reid Hospital) from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. The meeting included a variety of hands on activities covering existing conditions of the community and future aspirations for park facilities and program development.
