CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — The Chesterfield Board of Supervisors and School Board, accompanied by county staff, will be hosting a series of community meetings next month to help share information and answer questions on the upcoming bond referendum. 

This fall, Chesterfield residents will vote on the Community Facilities Bond Plan which would authorize the issuance of $540 million in General Obligation bonds. If approved the Community Facilities Bond Plan will, over the next eight to 10 years, fund 26 capital improvement projects split among four categories: Schools, public safety, libraries, and parks. 

Some $375 million of the bonds would be allocated to Chesterfield County Public Schools for seven projects that include replacing three elementary schools and building another while also building a new high school in western Route 360, expanding Thomas Dale High School, and replacing Midlothian Middle School. Meanwhile, the $165 million that would be allocated for county government projects includes $81.1 million for public safety, $45.7 million for libraries, and $38.2 million for parks and recreation. 

During the month of September, there will be eight community meetings held throughout Chesterfield to provide voters with important information on the referendum. The meetings include six in-person events spread out across the five magisterial districts as well as two Facebook Live meetings which can be attended virtually. 

The meetings, which will all begin at 6 p.m., will be held on the following dates and sites:

  • Tuesday, Sept. 6- CTC Hull Auditorium, 13900 Hull Street Road (Clover Hill District)
