Mission Statement

The Richmond Main Street Initiative, Inc. is a community-based organization dedicated to revitalizing historic downtown Richmond as a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly urban village offering products, services, arts and entertainment that reflect the community's rich and diverse heritage.

Description

The Richmond Main Street Initiative, Inc., was founded in 2000 and incorporated in 2002 as a California nonprofit corporation. We seek to develop and implement a comprehensive revitalization program to realize fully the economic potential of Richmond, California's historic downtown district. Like many urban commercial districts thought the United States, the downtown area, once a thriving commercial district boasting a variety of retail, service and entertainment options, began to suffer economic reversal by the late 1960's as commercial and residential development shifted to suburbia, drawing much of the area's commercial activity with it. Richmond Main Street is working to restore downtown's former status as a thriving, pedestrian-friendly central business district with arts and entertainment, retail and services to reflect our diverse community.
