The champion of ouR-HOME is the North Richmond Community Advisory Board, which includes a diverse group of local residents, elected officials, public agencies and community organizations.
The ouR-HOME projects enjoy the support of the City of Richmond Mayor’s Office and County Supervisor John Gioia’s office. Support will be requested from the North Richmond Municipal Advisory Council, East Bay Regional Parks District, Contra Costa Public Works, Contra Costa Flood Control District, West County Wastewater District and Bay and Water Trails as key project partners. The Mithun Home Team is a technical design team that includes landscape architects, architects, planners, coastal engineers, ecologists, artists, transportation and alternative mobility planners, affordable housing finance experts, economic advisors and community outreach facilitators.
Juliana Gonzales of The Watershed Project and Robert Rogers of County Supervisor John Gioia’s office have been the community liaisons throughout the process. Key community organizations such as Urban Tilth, Community Housing Development Corporation, Safe Return Project and the Council of Industries are participating on the advisory board. Public agencies include Contra Costa Flood Control District, West County Wastewater Facility, San Francisco Estuary Partnership and Contra Costa Public Works. To ensure direct community benefits, a third of board members are North Richmond residents and the board intentionally reflects the racial diversity of the community.
