I should have mentioned this sooner but Richmond City Council is on Summer Recess for the entire month of August with the exception of a Health, Human Services and Education Committee meeting chaired by Councilman Chris Hilbert [3rd District] to be held Wednesday August 19 at 5 PM in Council Chambers.
A couple of weeks ago, a citizen of Henrico invited me to attend the Board of Supervisor meeting held on Tuesday, August 11 at 7 PM. It was my first time attending a meeting of the County Board of Supervisors. It was different from Richmond City Council's meetings in a number of notable ways. When time permits I will write to discuss the notable differences.
In the meantime, I wanted to post the discussion and adoption of Henrico County's 2026 Comprehensive Plan. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the citizens of Henrico County the plan was modified to preserve the Varina District's rural character and seeks to protect agricultural land.
