The Richmond Project Team within the Planning & Development Branch, was established by the Richmond School District and the Ministry of Education in early 2018 to focus on clearing a backlog of seismic upgrades at local schools creating the conditions required to ensure safe seats for all Richmond students as soon as possible.
Our Facilities Planning Team is responsible for the Long Range Facilities Plan (LRFP) and the various planning strategies associated with the LRFP such as enrolment projections, capital plans and project feasibility studies, catchment area boundary reviews and accommodation studies.
