CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — The Chesterfield Planning Department is hosting an online community meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30 to receive feedback on older land uses it plans to remove from sections of the county’s Comprehensive Plan.
Residents and businesses interested in attending the virtual meeting should contact Principal Planner Drew Noxon via email. A link to the meeting will also be posted to a website dedicated to the land use revision closer to Nov. 30.
County planning officials are seeking to remove outdated area plans and replace their land uses with modern equivalents found within the county’s Comprehensive Plan, which was adopted by the Board of Supervisors in May 2019.
The four area plans targeted for removal include:
All four area plans encompass about 10,000 acres of mostly developed property.
By replacing these older area plans with present-day land uses, county planners are hoping to protect existing neighborhoods, spur redevelopment and revitalization of older commercial areas and make the plan more simpler and user-friendly.
A website, which includes proposed land use maps for the area plans proposed to be replaced, has been created to provide additional information on the initiative and to receive questions, comments and concerns from residents and businesses. An update presented to the Chesterfield Planning Commission during its Sept. 21 work session about the plan also is available for viewing around the 27:47-time stamp.
A public hearing regarding proposed revisions to the plan is scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 21 during Chesterfield Planning Commission meeting.
