Meetings set to discuss potential North Richmond annexation


A series of community meetings have been slated to discuss a study on the potential annexation of currently unincorporated North Richmond to the City of Richmond.

Unincorporated North Richmond comprises about 900 acres of property adjoining the bay, with 3,717 residents (as of the 2010 U.S. Census).

The meetings will focus on a fiscal analysis and service plan study conducted by Willdan Financial Services on the feasibility of  annexation on the City of Richmond, including impact on city revenues and expenditures  as well as the new service demands that would be prompted.

The meetings are cosponsored by the City of Richmond and Contra Costa County, and will kick off with an initial discussion on July 13, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., on the first floor of the Community Heritage Senior Apartments, 1555 Fred Jackson Way in North Richmond.

Additional meetings will follow at the below sites and dates:

  • July 20 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., Verde Elementary School, 2000 Giaramita St., North Richmond.
  • 1 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., North Richmond Municipal Advisory Council, 515 Silver Ave., North Richmond.
  • 26 from 6:30 p.m. start time, Richmond City Council, 440 Civic Center Plaza, Richmond.

The Richmond City Council will receive an update on the fiscal analysis and service plan study at the July 11 City Council Meeting, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at 440 Civic Center Plaza.
