Renewal of the Minoru Lakes District, upgrades to Alexandra Neighbourhood Park and three new community gardens, are just a few of the 57 projects the city is featuring in its annual show-and-tell.
The 2021 Capital Projects Highlights is being presented on a digital, interactive map, which showcases ongoing upgrades, building improvements and new transportation initiatives in Richmond.
Projects are categorized into five sections: transportation, buildings, parks, public art and engineering and public works.
Visitors can click the links to each project which will include a summary of the project, project start and end dates, cost, images and videos.
In the engineering and public works category, for example, projects such as the ongoing dike upgrades, water-main installations and district energy utility expansions are highlighted.
In past years, the city would host an open house at Richmond City Hall, where it would welcome thousands of visitors to view project display boards and speak to city staff.
However, the event was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19 and was replaced by its digital version -- as is the case again this year.
Any questions can be asked online until Sunday, May 30 or can be directed to the project lead directly from the project web pages.
