What is the Richmond Hill Centre?
The Richmond Hill Centre (RHC) is an intensification area located around the intersection of Yonge Street and Highway 7.
Urban Growth Centre
The Richmond Hill Centre is identified as an Urban Growth Centre by the Province in the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, 2017. It is also identified as a Regional Centre in both the York Region Official Plan and the Richmond Hill Official Plan. The Centre will accommodate a large portion of the new residents expected to move to Richmond Hill over the next 10-20 years.
Integrated Transit Hub
Unique in the GTA, Richmond Hill Centre will be built around the intersection of five modes of public transit, including the Yonge Subway extension, the Richmond Hill GO line, the Highway 407 Transitway, Viva bus rapid transit, and local GO and YRT buses.
The first public consultation event was held on Wednesday, June 26, 2019. If you were unable to attend the meeting, or wish to view the materials again, the display boards and presentation from the Open House are available for viewing.

What is the RHC Secondary Plan?
With the major investments occurring in public transit in and around the Centre, Richmond Hill is developing a Secondary Plan to coordinate the expected growth in this area. The Secondary Plan will shape the vision for the urban centre with a balance of residential and commercial uses where people can live, work, and play. It will also support the creation of public spaces, walkable streets, and transit-oriented development.
