Richmond, Maine: A Small Town with a Big Heart

If you're looking for a place to visit or call home, consider Richmond, Maine. We're blessed with unparalleled beauty, from the rolling hills that surround us to the timeless Kennebec River that defines our downtown.

Swan Island - on the Historic Register

Visitors come from miles away to Swan Island, just a stone’s throw from downtown Richmond. Four miles of trails and camping are yours to enjoy as you share the island with deer and bald eagles.

Shopping Here, Shopping There

Downtown Richmond has a lot of small shops that take you back to an earlier time. Whether shopping antiques or looking for a special gift, you can probably find something of interest right in town.

But when you get a hankering for more shopping choices, you can reach the shopping nexus of Topsham about 20 minutes away. Or enjoy the cultural offerings of the Augusta Civic Center about 30 minutes in the other direction. And if your interest is the ocean, you'll find the beautiful Maine coast just 20 minutes away - get there by car or boat.

PUBLIC HEARING
FOR COMPREHENSIVE PLAN

The Board of Selectmen and the Comprehensive Plan Committee will be holding a public hearing on the proposed Comprehensive Plan Update on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 at 6:00 PM at the Marcia Buker Elementary School Gymnasium.

The Comprehensive Plan is an important planning document identifying various community and municipal issues. Periodic revisions are required under state law, and are needed to qualify for various state grants. It is intended to be a guide for managing the change that will occur within the community over the next 10 years or so.  If adopted by the Town at the June 14 election, the Plan will provide a set of policies that will help guide decisions on land use, transportation, economic development, and other areas.  The Plan was prepared by a committee of Richmond residents and is an update of a Plan adopted in 1991, as required by state law.

Copies of the Comprehensive Plan will be available at the Town Office during normal business hours, and on the Town website at www.richmondmaine.com.
