City of Richmond Hill
One of Ontario’s long-standing municipalities has announced a change. Richmond Hill will no longer be known as the Town of Richmond Hill — it has changed its name to the City of Richmond Hill. “People favouring ‘Town’ tend to think of a tight-knit community where neighbours know each other’s names and their kids play together in our parks. Those who think ‘City’ see an urban and competitive municipality. Richmond Hill is both and our new name won’t change that,” says Richmond Hill’s Mayor Dave Barrow.
