The mission of the City of Richmond is:
To be a world-class city that offers a safe, supportive, and culturally diverse environment for citizens, tourists, and businesses alike.

Philosophy for the Master Plan: (City of Richmond's Master Plan 2000-2020)
Planning for the future should be based upon enhancing the quality of life in the City of Richmond's Jackson Ward, and that quality of life is the essential element needed to attract and retain residents, businesses, and visitors.

Our Philosophy for the Jackson Ward Phase I: (Master plan we are presenting)
To build a smooth bridge between "one of the biggest business centers in the City of Richmond" and "One of the 11 Most Endangered Places in the National Trust for Historic Preservation."

Create this bridge based on studies, work with representatives of Jackson Ward neighborhood, the RRHA, The City of Richmond, and Richmond business leaders.

"The Historic Jackson Ward neighborhood has been one of America's most vibrant African-American districts, once bursting with the sounds of jazz and prosperity."

Jazz is an international language and can provide communication for all walks of life, and we chose this language to influence our design efforts.
