Environmental Resources

Richmond Regional PDC staff provides a variety of environmental planning services for the region's nine localities. This program is supported in large part by an annual grant from the Virginia Coastal Zone Management (VCZM) Program at the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. Each year, projects include but are not limited to:

  • Review of environmental permit and review requests and subsequent notification of affected localities;

  • Periodic workshops and technical sessions on current issues, regulations, legislation, and program developments;

  • Attendance of various local and regional committees; and

  • Researching information requests.

In the past several years, RRPDC projects have ranged from green infrastructure planning to a study of water and sewer services in the region's localities. A portion of VCZM grant funds have also been used to support the development of a regional existing land use GIS layer and database. RRPDC staff has also provided support for local implementation of the recently revised and adopted Virginia Stormwater Management Regulations and the Virginia Watershed Implementation Plan for the Chesapeake Bay TMDL.

These issues in addition to other pertinent topics are discussed at regular workgroup meetings of representatives from the localities in the Richmond Region organized and hosted by the RRPDC. Each locality designates staff persons from various departments to attend. For more information about environmental projects at the RRPDC or the regional environmental workgroup, please contact Sarah Stewart at or (804)323-2033 ext 119.
