Social Development Strategy for the City of Richmond
Diversity Clues Consulting Inc. was retained by the City of Richmond to assist in editing the existing policy content, conducting conceptual re-design, filling in the gaps, and developing missing content for the city-wide social policy.
The City of Richmond is in the final phases of preparing a Social Development Strategy for Richmond 2012-2012. The purpose of the Social Planning Strategy (“Strategy”) is to help guide the City of Richmond’s decisions on social planning matters over the next ten (10) years. To this end, the Strategy will:
- Identify future social planning priorities for Richmond.
- Clarify appropriate responsibilities for the City and others.
- Provide the foundation for more effective and sustainable social planning and service delivery in the future.
Since November 2009, the City has initiated extensive stakeholder consultations, research and analysis to prepare the Strategy. The Strategy in its current state is not a final policy document but it is intended to be used as a draft document for soliciting and securing comments from the general public and community stakeholders.
The first draft of the Social Development Strategy for Richmond was released in December 2012. View the draft.
