Richmond’s traditional industries have been fishery and agriculture, a heritage that the city government wants to preserve. Also, 1.4 million birds migrate through as part of the Pacific Flyway. So with all these natural characteristics, the city hopes to
keep up with its pro-environment image and habitat.
With the green efforts that the Richmond government is spearheading, things are falling in place. Although the Middle Arm Greenway project is far from finish, citizens are already enjoying cycling and jogging there on the raised dyke trails along the Fraser River.
It’s a new vision for Richmond, one that would likely bear fruit in the post-2010 Olympics Games era.
