phone conversation with City of Richmond OCP staff member:  the 15 neighbourhoods concept in the OCP 2041 document from 2011 is not in use anymore.  It was the only one that contained Blundell  Neighbourhood, probably because it contained a shopping centre.   It sounds like this neighbourhood is currently considered "West Richmond" with no plans for a community centre in this area
