The Richmond Hills Initiative would protect rare and endangered species, help sequester carbon in vegetation and soils, safeguard wetlands, and provide for recreation, agriculture and similar compatible uses.

The parcel is directly adjacent to the 2429-acre Wildcat Canyon Regional Park.

The initiative would accomplish its preservation goals by amending the Richmond General Plan by enacting large-lot rural zoning that can only be modified by the voters of Richmond.

Surrounded by private and public lands, the area includes nine streambeds and their riparian zones, as well as vernal pools, oak forests, and pasturelands.
