Welcome to Richmond, Utah! We're located in the northern part of the state in beautiful Cache Valley. A rural community of 2470 people, we take pride in our agricultural roots. Our biggest celebration is Black & White Days, the longest running Holstein dairy show west of the Mississippi River. In addition to the cattle show, we also have a Chuckwagon Breakfast (cooked and served by the City Council), a horse show, and a footrace; the celebration ends with an old-fashioned horse pull Saturday night. Black & White Days are held the third week of May; click here for more information.
But that’s not all there is to our little town. We’re home to a number of award-winning businesses and thriving home enterprises. With the expansion of Highway 91 in 2006, we are seeing an increase in population and upgrading of our infrastructure. Come visit us and see why we're proud of our community!

Richmond City has imposed firework restrictions for July 21st through July 27th. Fireworks cannot be lit east of 300 East. This is for all types of fireworks.
Those residing in areas where fireworks cannot be lit are welcome to use the city ball diamond area behind L.D.’s café to light their fireworks.
The hills and open areas are drying rapidly and are very vulnerable to wildfires. Richmond City, Cache County and the State of Utah have all imposed firework restrictions for this reason. If you have questions; please call the city office at 258-2092.

Temporary Signs (yard sales, etc.)
Many of the yard sale and event signs going up around town are staying up well past the event. When putting up these signs, keep in mind that there are rules to follow. First, you cannot attach them to a street sign. Second, ensure that where you are posting the sign won’t block the view of a driver. Third, please remove the sign as soon as your event is over. And last, PLEASE make the letters big and bold for a driver to see and read from a distance.

Richmond Cemetery District
Information on the Richmond Cemetery District may be found here. The District is a local government entity separate from Richmond City but as a service to citizens, the city will host them on this website. You'll be able to find contact information on the Board of Directors, minutes of past meetings, and announcements of upcoming ones. More information will be added so check back soon!
Family Assistance Centers for Military
The Family Assistance Center (FAC) is set up to help in referrals to agencies that can provide services to the families of all branches of service, not just the National Guard. Here is an overview of what they can help with; visit the website or call (435) 890-8604.
Another program to help soldiers and their families is the Community Covenant program. While it is an Army program, it extends to the other military services. Soldiers and their families can find programs and organizations that provide support, and the public can find programs and organizations where you can get involved in supporting your military. The city council signed the Community Covenant at our city party on September 8. Councilmember Terrie Wierenga is the liaison with the Utah National Guard program.
