GPRA partners with the City of Richmond to represent our residents in development, redevelopment and zoning and issues. The P & Z Chair understands the Richmond 300 Plan, develops positive relationships and communicationn with the City of Richmond PDR team, and attends relevant City meetings.

The Planning and Zoning Committee is responsible for:

  • monitoring development, redevelopment, zoning, Special Use Permits activities, and their potential impact on the neighborhoods within the GPRA boundaries.
  • arranging presentations of development or redevelopment proposals, SUP requests, or zoning changes, so that the Board may facilitate informing our residents.
  •  making a recommendation to the Board regarding an Association position regarding proposals.

We are recruiting Volunteers to learn about the important work of this committee and to join.
