Richmond Hill-A Vibrant and Active Community


We live in a vibrant and active community here in Richmond Hill and in no month is this more evident than May. There is a lot going on in our town. This weekend our community hosted a number of events for various causes including Strides for Stroke in support of Mackenzie Health Hospital and a Walk in support of  L’Arche Daybreak. We also had the Richmond Hill Horticultural Society’s Plant sale, and in the coming weeks we have many other events like these, that bring our community together. For a complete list you can visit to see what is available in Richmond Hill to enjoy on any given day.

Included in this edition is a follow up report on our Museum Feasibility Study, news about Richmond Hill’s OMB motion receiving endorsement by other municipalities in advance of the OMB Summit this weekend, an update on a number of development applications in Ward 4, an update on the renewal plans for Bradstock Park, the announcement of a revitalized Farmers’ Market in the Village Core, a call for public input regarding our plans to mark Canada’s 150 birthday next year, and much more. I have also added a more prominent index in order to make it easier to find information in the newsletter.
