CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — The Chesterfield County Planning Department will host a community meeting on Tuesday, June 14 to present information about potential changes to the county’s zoning ordinance regarding code amendments to section 19.1-279.D of the zoning ordinance (PDF).
Chesterfield residents are encouraged to participate virtually in the meeting, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. The meeting will be streamed via Microsoft Teams, with a link to the meeting being posted to the Planning Department’s website.
Section 19.1-279.D provides that outdoor advertising signs be modernized and improved through standards which enhance the overall attractiveness of signage in the county. This section includes a termination date of July 24, 2023, for the replacement or modernization of outdoor advertising signs located along Routes 1, 10, 60 and 360. Any sign modernized, or new sign installed in compliance with this section, shall be considered legally conforming.
Many county businesses have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and would face additional financial hardship if forced to modernize or replace signs by the current termination date. As such, Planning is proposing an amendment to extend the termination date for replacement or modernization of signs to July 24, 2028.
Anyone with questions can visit the Planning Department’s website or contact Drew Noxon at (804) 748-1086 or via email at NoxonA@Chesterfield.gov.
