The Town of
Richmond

Richmond is located in the western foothills of the Green Mountains on the eastern edge of the Lake Champlain valley. The Winooski River bisects the town of 4,090 residents from east to west, as does Interstate 89, the New England Central Railway and U.S. Route 2. The Town, organized in 1794, is home of the Round Church, a 16-sided meetinghouse built in 1813 that is recognized as a National Historic Landmark.

Richmond Village Sidewalks Scoping Study

The Town of Richmond has made gains in its sidewalk network and now seeks to close three critical gaps in the network. This project is a scoping study for sidewalks within Richmond Village and areas adjacent to the village. The project would investigate extending existing facilities and connecting facilities that are currently unconnected. The goal of this project is to provide options to create vital pedestrian connections to community resources and commercial corridors within the village, as well as popular destinations outside the Richmond Village.
