Established in 1997, the Richmond Village Association (RVA) is a non-profit organization created to represent the interest of Richmond residents. Since amalgamation into the City of Ottawa in 2001, the RVA’s role has included that of an advocate where we take a proactive approach on issues concerning Richmond residents. We help to form opinions on village issues through town hall meetings, reach a consensus among residents, and then represent the particular viewpoint to various levels of government where the interests of Richmond residents may be affected.
Over the years, the RVA has done its part to give Richmond its quaint appeal by putting up flowers and flags along the main streets, and by planting trees in the Jock River Park.
One of the RVA’s proud accomplishments is the Richmond Heritage Mural Gallery. This Gallery was a Millennium project that began in 2000 under the vision and direction of past president Ted Brown. There are seven murals depicting life in Richmond from the clearing of the land for what would soon become the village of Richmond, to most recent mural depicting the volunteers and veterans of the past two world wars. They can be seen on the both the eastern and western walls of the Richmond Memorial Community Centre and at this link. This project would not have been possible without the support of our local artistic community.
