About

Welcome to the City of Richmond’s open data portal – a 24/7 clearinghouse of data in a standard format that is readable by virtually all computer systems!

This site represents the City of Richmond’s commitment to making data more transparent and accessible for the general public. We believe that increasing the transparency of government business will enhance civic engagement, promote more partnership opportunities between government and the public, and make municipal services more efficient and effective. Additionally, open access to City data helps build and sustain trust by providing citizens with a higher degree of visibility into public services.

I sincerely hope you find this open data portal useful, and that this portal serves as a catalyst for dialog that leads to a more engaged community. Please stay connected, as data and related information on this portal will be updated regularly.

Sincerely,

Mayor Tom Butt
