Our Focus

We are examining the crucial issues that will enable people in our region to flourish and prosper in a time of rapid change.

Fortunately, there are many individuals, groups, local governments and organizations that are currently working to make the region a better place.

The Capital Region Collaborative is one such initiative that is working hard on involving citizens from across all of Central Virginia in determining today’s issues and preparing plans to address them.

Richmond’s Future will complement and enhance existing efforts by focusing on the key factors that will enable our region to thrive, not only tomorrow but, 10 and 20 years from now.

What are the things we need to be thinking about, planning for, and envisioning so that future is a better one for our children and grandchildren?

Key Drivers for the Future – We are working with thought leaders in the RVA Region to develop a list of key drivers to consider as we plan the work of Richmond’s Future.

Initiatives – This is what we’re currently focusing on, as well as information about past initiatives.

Throughout this site, you’ll learn more about our thinking about creating a better future for the region. You’ll also be able to access our studies and work to date, as well as work that has been done by others in the region, and around the country.
