Henrico to hold Aug. 29 open house on Glen Allen Small Area Study

The Henrico County Planning Department will hold an open house Tuesday, Aug. 29 for residents and other members of the public to provide input on the Glen Allen Small Area Study.

The meeting will be held from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Glen Allen Cultural Arts Center, 2880 Mountain Road. The informal structure will allow residents to attend at their convenience and to ask questions and discuss the study one on one with Planning staff.

The study will focus on an approximately 161-acre area around the intersection of Mountain and Purcell roads and will make recommendations to promote continued high-quality development that is consistent with the existing village character.

Henrico’s 2026 Comprehensive Plan identifies special focus areas with characteristics that warrant attention and consideration beyond the plan’s land-use policies. The study will examine the Glen Allen area for possible designation as a special focus area and the potential for an overlay district to further guide future development.

In the months ahead, public hearings and other meetings will be held so residents can provide more-focused input on the study’s recommendations. The Glen Allen Small Area Study ultimately will be presented to the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors for review and approval.
