City Searches For Housing Task Force Members

The city is looking for approximately 12 to 20 people to form the task force.

Editor's Note: the following information was taken directly from the City of Richfield's website.

Envisioning the future of Richfield's housing

In August of 2012, at a joint City Council, Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) and Planning Commission work session, a presentation and discussion took place suggesting the need for a community process to establish a Housing Vision for the city. Public leaders agreed to move forward with this process. In November of 2012, a proposal from the consulting firm Stantec was approved to guide this process.

Be a part of the Housing visioning task force!

As part of the Housing Visioning process a Task Force of approximately 12 - 20 people will be formed.  The Task Force will meet for eight two-hour meetings over a period of about three months (see calendar of meeting dates here).
