We are revitalizing Historic Downtown Richmond. Over the past 16 years, we have utilized the Main Street Approach to develop and implement equitable economic development, beautification, arts and entertainment, and wellness programs.
And our work is paying off. Our work continues to grow, improve, and impact more people:

  • record-breaking attendance and community participation at our events
  • increasing access to health and wellness resources
  • providing technical assistance and support to small businesses, emerging entrepreneurs, and Downtown merchants
  • ensuring a clean and safe environment for everyone who lives, works, and visits Downtown

We are also embarking on new initiatives that we know will transform our Downtown into the vibrant urban village all of us envision. The excitement is building for new projects in 2017 and beyond. We are working diligently with a new developer to fill the BART retail space on Macdonald Avenue with several new businesses, including a café and co-working/business incubator space that will create jobs and new economic development opportunities for Richmond residents.
It is through the generous support of local businesses, district property owners, philanthropic organizations, small businesses, and individual donors that we are making strides in Downtown Richmond.

We know that you believe in the power of a healthy, thriving Downtown.
